Green electricity from sunlight
Generating renewable energy is a major factor in the Black Forest region in the south-west of Germany. MEVA is increasingly relying on photovoltaic (PV) systems as a clean way to produce electricity, as solar power can be produced directly where the electricity is required and consumed.
As is the case at our headquarters in Haiterbach: The modernisation work in Factory I (new production) and Factory II (Formwork Centre), including major investments in the building infrastructure and plant technology, were completed with the installation of a high-performance 950 kWp photovoltaic system.
During the renovation of the roofs, 1,839 PV modules were installed on a surface area of 3,678 m². The sunlight collected is converted into electrical energy and fed into a 300 kWh storage battery. MEVA thus produces about 70% of its electricity needs at its headquarters in Haiterbach on site in an environmental friendly manner. “Our processes, the quality of our formwork and the comfort of the working environment for our employees have reached a new level – in conjunction with greater sustainability and significantly reduced energy consumption,” says production manager Harald Konrad, summing up the outcome of the modernisation work.
