Italian company Omnia Energy 3 has built a 367 kWp solar system at Italian food wholesaler Polo´s headquarters in Teolo, between Verona and Venice, using Hanwha Q CELLS.
Hanwah Modules Test Center (Hanwha)
Utilizing the 1.335 Q CELLS' solar modules, the installations produce around 410 MWh of clean energy per year. Polo S.p.A. uses the electricity to power its logistics center and especially its unique frozen food service facility – a fully automated food logistics facility operated at a constant temperature of -25°C. By using 90 percent of the solar system´s electricity to operate its facilities, the food service provider switches large parts of its energy consumption to self-produced and self-consumed solar energy.
The solar system's payback period is estimated at less than four years, resulting in subsequent electricity cost savings of an estimated €72,000 ($89,600) per year.
Galdino Peruzzo, President of Polo S.p.A. said, “We are glad to have partnered with Omnia Energy 3 and Hanwha Q CELLS for our photovoltaic installation. The Q CELLS’ solar modules truly deliver on their promises. Thus, the solar system is an important step for making our company´s energy setup fit for the future – and that goes both in ecologic and in economic terms.”
Omnia Energy 3´s owner, Stephane Moretti, added, “We are very pleased to realize yet another win-win solar installation with Hanwha Q CELLS.”
