The solar PV system can generate up to 150 MWh of electricity per year, most of which is delivered directly to the farm will be fed into the local electricity grid.
The farm is owned by Natursana, a company that specialises in controlled agriculture and organic farming.
“PV technology is very well suited to farms and our system will have a hugely positive impact on our business,” says Sonia Calabrese, the Owner of Natursana.
“It offers environmental and economic benefits. In fact, the energy it generates is equivalent to our power needs so we can be energy self-sufficient. Solar power’s ability to reduce a company’s reliance on traditional energy sources is a great incentive to businesses to invest in renewable energy, particularly during a time of economic uncertainty. We chose to work with Tenesol because it is a multinational company with much experience and offers direct relationships with people who have a deep-seated knowledge of the solar industry in our region.”
The solar PV system consists of 432 modules manufactured by Tenesol.
