San Marino dedicated to climate protection – largest PV installation with aleo modules inaugurated
At the Paris Conference on Climate San Marino last December was one of the smallest players, but the small state is genuinely successful in protecting the environment. When signing the climate treaty in spring in New York, San Marino´s Environment Secretary of State Antonella Mularoni confirmed that the Republic will continue to contribute to climate protection. As a practical step recently a 700 kW PV installation with Aleo modules was inaugurated by Mularoni. It will prevent more than 500 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
Combined with rooftop renovation
It was installed on the company building roof of Colorificio Sammarinese. Occasion of the installation was the renovation of the roof. “For us as a manufacturer of environmentally friendly paints and enamels it is a logical step on the road to sustainable production to have an own photovoltaic system “, says Managing Director Giulio Caramaschi. The traditional company targets in the production of water-soluble and non-toxic paints to a minimum resource consumption. The environmentally friendly power from the roof of the company building is consumed by the enterprise itself, feeding the surplus power into the grid.
Local installer Prometeo Energy
The system was installed by Prometeo Energy S.r.l. The experienced solar specialist from Serravalle, San Marino has more than 2,400 high-performance monocrystalline modules from aleo solar arranged on the 4,000 square meters roof area. (HCN)
