Agricultural equipment produced with solar energy
Joper, an agricultural and industrial equipment company, started its decarbonisation process by installing a photovoltaic power plant. In a partnership with Helexia, it implemented a photovoltaic energy production system for self-consumption that already produces about 40% of energy, which allows reducing energy costs and shows a solid commitment to sustainability.
There are over 800 panels with an installed power of 470 kilowatt-peak (470 kWp) and an estimated annual production of 733 megawatt-hours (733 MWh). With an investment of 400 thousand euros and a 15-year supply contract, with a cost below the energy market value, this option will allow the use of energy in self-consumption, suppressing 40% of the energy needs with the help of solar energy.
