An Autarco total solution with innovative Silverpoint solar panels
In September of 2019 Jeroen Vlemmings Elektro & Montage installed an Autarco total solution at ebm-papst Benelux. A system of innovative Silverpoint solar panels, including an insured kWh guarantee.
ebm-papst is a global organisation specialised in ventilation and drive technology. These sustainable fans are also used in Autarco inverters. As a part of their Green Intelligence company philosophy they aim to make every new product more sustainable than the previous. Matching with this philosophy is a solar energy system by Autarco on the roof of their new facility in Beek en Donk. We asked the director of ebm papst, Ad van Nistelrooij, a few quick questions.
Why is a solar total solution important to you?
We’ve purchased all products from one brand and that’s important to us as we are not solar specialists. We liked to be fully taken care of so that we could continue to focus on our own business. A total solution from one brand is the best choice so that we have one point of contact.
What’s the reason for choosing solar to become more sustainable?
Green Intelligence is our company philosophy, meaning that in everything we do we’re aiming to contribute to a more sustainable world. We should commit to a sustainable future to maintain a right to exist. Therefore we’ve decided to install a solar solution on the roof of our new building making it nearly energy neutral.
What is in your opinion the added value of a business case with kWh guarantee?
Beforehand we can’t say with certainty how long the solar energy system will last and how it will perform. That’s why it’s important to us to have a rock-solid business case, insured by the kWh guarantee foundation. This way we know for sure that the upcoming 10-15 years the business case will be met like how it was calculated beforehand. If the system underperforms in the future we will get a financial compensation.
