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.
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.
