One year of solar energy

A wise, convenient but above all sustainable investment

One year of solar energy

A wise, convenient but above all sustainable investment

In PNR for years we have placed the protection of the environment and eco-sustainability at the center: exactly one year ago a photovoltaic system was installed on the roof of our company.

A wise, convenient but above all sustainable investment that has brought great environmental benefits and will fundamentally support the company’s production activities.

In May 2020 PNR decided to uninstall the old gas boilers and to focus on heating through air conditioners, which allows us to rely 100% on electricity and no longer on gas. Also the company’s machinery and numerous computers partially rely on the photovoltaic system, optimizing resources even more.

The custom-made plant has 642 modules and produces a monthly average of 20 MWh of energy, avoiding carbon dioxide emissions over 9 tons per month, an average of 240 trees planted thus giving an environmental benefit not only to the company but to the whole community.

A year after installation we reached 226 megawatts of energy produced, managing to cover 25% of our consumption.

SOLAR ENERGY
The future for PNR 

We plan to double our solar panels in 2022 so we can be more than 50% self-sufficient in energy.
