Benefits of investing in a total solar solution
ETB van Lanen sold an Autarco total solution to agro-entrepreneur Jan de Haas in April of 2020, after which they’ve installed it in May. A system consisting of 878 powerful MHE series solar panels totaling 294 kWp.
Thanks to the SDE+ subsidy De Haas was able to invest in sustainable energy through solar. This PV total solution is one of many efforts made by the company to make the entire business more sustainable. We asked Jan a few quick questions.
Why is a solar total solution important to you?
Autarco’s total solution appealed to me because it ensures me all components work seamlessly together. The inverters work beautifully together with the panels and with everything in between. Cables are really important to me too as you sometimes hear about fire hazards when cables don’t connect properly. With a total solution from one supplier that’s not an issue.
What’s the reason for choosing solar to become more sustainable?
Sustainability is something we have to improve continuously, both now and in the future. With our new solar PV system we’re able to produce our own energy which we use in our company.
Can you share some details about your solar PV system?
The Autarco system we chose for consists of more than enough solar panels to cover our needs. The inverters are equipped with a system that makes sure the main fuse isn’t overloaded when production is high.
