A photovoltaic (PV) installation on the roof of E.G.O. Components (China) Co., Ltd (E.G.O. China) supplies 1,337 MWh of electricity annually.

Photovoltaic modules are particularly suitable as a form of renewable energy. A PV system has now been installed on the approximately 15,000 m² roof of the E.G.O. plant in Taicang, China. A tree was also planted to symbolize the green energy.

Cutting-edge technology

The modules used by E.G.O. China are the latest monocrystalline silicon plates, which have various advantages. They offer exceptional flexibility, and polymer composites keep components crack-free, with a minimum bending diameter of one meter. The glass-free encapsulation makes them 60 to 70 % lighter.

A load capacity of only four kilograms per square meter is required on the roof, which is only 15 to 20 % of what conventional solar modules require. The modules are also safe and reliable.

The advantages of the solar module project:

  • E.G.O. China only has to provide the area for the photovoltaic plant to the investor and receives solar electricity at a reduced rate (similar to a lease) in return.
  • Total annual electricity generation 1,337 MWh, 89.2 kWh per m².
  • Solar modules can last up to 25 years, which means significant cost savings.
  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of around 18,510 t within 25 years.
