SolTech Energy receives an order for 2.8 MSEK from the real estate/property company Karlsviken AB
The order is for a solar cell field installation capable of producing the equivalent of 240 KW (240,000 watts). Plans call for the installation to be carried out during the third quarter of 2017 at Karlsviken AB’s Norrby Gård (Norrby), located outside Norrtälje,
The installation will provide almost 70 percent of Norrby’s annual electricity consumption; moreover, the installation will be set up so that the electricity it produces is first and foremost made available to Norrby’s dwellings and industrial buildings, with possible excess production sold to the central network.
SolTech continues to note a strong, ever-rising interest in solar energy solutions, especially among real estate/property owners. This pronounced trend is not only a question of environmental concern, but also of long range economic planning. Large industrial customers/installations are therefore one of our focus-areas, and today we have qualified personnel dedicated to this segment of our business. We have a well-developed pipeline within the area and see many possibilities of doing more such business in the near future,” observes Frederic Telelander, CEO of SolTech Energy.
Karlsviken strives to make its entire property holdings energy neutral via the use of renewable energy, and this field installation is a big step toward achieving that goal. Thanks to the flexibility in the electricity network we are able to sell any excess, and thereby contribute to Sweden’s changeover from usual energy sources. Best of all: We envision significant savings for Norrby Gård,” states Per Nordin, CEO of Karlsviken
