We, Ursa-Chemie GmbH, are setting an example for a sustainable energy future. Our newly installed photovoltaic system is not only a response to the current challenges of the energy crisis, but also a contribution to environmentally friendly business practices. In this blog post, we take you on a journey through the development, performance and future plans for our new photovoltaic system.
The idea in times of energy crisis:
The idea to install our photovoltaic system was born in the midst of the energy crisis, when rising energy prices were putting a strain on the economy. At this point, it became clear that generating energy in-house was not only more cost-effective than purchasing it from a supplier, but could also contribute to energy security.
Economic and ecological benefits:
However, the advantages of the photovoltaic system go far beyond the financial savings. By generating energy locally, we can work autonomously to some extent and at the same time make a contribution to environmental protection. Electrification in various areas is steadily increasing, and the plant is already being expanded to meet future demand.
- Size of the system: 422.4 kWp
- Three inverters with 125 kW output each
- Annual electricity generation: 322,000 kWh
- Self-consumption rate: 80%
- Feed into the grid: 20%
- Degree of self-sufficiency: 44
- CO₂ savings: 193 tonnes/year
- Savings in electricity costs per year: over €30,000
Sustainability and future outlook:
The focus of our photovoltaic system is primarily on self-consumption. Feeding into the grid is a positive side effect that allows us to use the surplus to plough back some money. The self-sufficiency, CO₂ savings and reduction in electricity costs demonstrate the long-term success of our investments.
Our photovoltaic system not only makes economic sense, but also contributes to a sustainable future. We are proud to be making an active contribution to the energy transition with our plant and look forward to further developments on this path.
