sun2roof solar rooftop projects with a total capacity of 146.6 kWp commissioned

The Saudi Arabian renewable energy company Energy Systems and The meeco Group part-nered in 2018 in order to support the country’s clean energy approach and equip private as well as commercial customers with sustainable energy solutions. Taking into account the excel-lent preconditions for renewable energy systems in the country, the declining prices for PV technologies and the growing interest of Saudi Arabia’s government to shift from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources, the exploitation of solar energy represents a promising oppor-tunity for private as well as commercial consumers. Within the scope of the founded joint venture company oursun Saudi Arabia, the first four sun2roof solar projects with a total capac-ity of 146.6 kWp have now been completed and ensure an annual clean energy generation of about 250 MWh.

Competitive solar energy through power purchase agreements (PPA)

Clean Energy,Projects,Sustainability — The meeco Group on November 1, 2018 at 14:02

meeco provides clean power investment without any upfront costs

Companies and private consumers in many regions worldwide have to cope with an unstable or highly expensive energy supply due to the unreliability of the grid or even the total absence of such a power supply. This involves, especially for companies and industries, a heavy disadvantage in terms of competitiveness on the global market. Paused production lines in manufacturing industries, interrupted cold chains in food factories or electrical breakdowns in office buildings are just a few examples how power cuts can cause substantial losses for the commercial sector and constitute a serious threat to their commercial success accordingly. Many companies rely on a diesel-based energy supply and suffer from high and unpredictable fuel and maintenance costs. Utilising solar (photovoltaic) technology is much more eco-friendly and cost-effective. The contractual framework of a power purchase agreement (PPA) offers all advantages of clean energy to long term predictable low prices with limited or no upfront capital expenditure (CAPEX) costs for the company.

meeco to enter the clean energy market of Madagascar

Common — The meeco Group on September 3, 2018 at 10:04

Madagascar offers perfect conditions for implementing solar energy plants.

Groupe Filatex and The meeco Group have agreed implementation of solar power plants to feed clean energy into the island’s electricity grid

Located in the Indian Ocean, the Republic of Madagascar known for its outstanding rich biodiversity, has an excellent natural potential for solar energy thanks to its geographical position and the strong solar radiation. In order to benefit from these advantageous climate conditions and to generate reliable clean energy to feed and stabilise the national grid, Groupe Filatex and meeco have recently signed a cooperation agreement.  In the initial phase, the agreement sets the basis to build, own and operate three solar energy projects: two utility-scale sun2live PV power plants with a nominal capacity of 7 MW and 8 MW, and one hybrid solar diesel project comprising of two parts each with a nominal capacity of 500 kWp.
