Companies that have already seen success
To help a company reduce its costs, we calculate its carbon footprint (environmental impact) and identify, together with specialized technicians, the measures to be taken:
- With the installation of 1,230 solar panels (351 kWp) on the company's roof, the company started to produce its own energy and achieved significant monthly savings in operating costs.
- It started to save, on average, close to EUR 42,790 annually and reduced the CO2 emissions of the company by 148 tonnes.
- Thanks to these savings, the company was able to recover its investment of EUR 274,794 in six and a half years.
Other benefits of investing in energy efficiency
- Protection against fluctuations in energy prices
- Compliance with new sustainability regulations
- Reduction of CO2 emissions and global warming
