IBC Solar AG has delivered its rooftop system for solar self-consumption. The 2.4MW were delivered to the province of Gelderland by the Dutch regional company IBC Solar B.V, and officially grid-connected on June 3rd. Approximately 75 percent of the green power produced is used for self-consumption, with the rest being fed into the public grid.
The local IBC Solar partner company Xperal was in charge of the installation. Altogether, there were 9,240 modules installed on the rooftops of Plospan, a wood processing company in Waardenburg.
The company made up of 70 employees is using the power for its production facility, where it is now supplying machines at the plant as well as its logistics with environmentally-friendly energy. The PV system produces 25 percent more energy than the company consumes, so the surplus is being fed into the public grid. With this amount of energy, 145 households are able to be supplied with energy for one year.
