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 brings sun2rope and sun2safe solar energy systems to Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp

The establishment of a reliable electricity supply represents an enormous challenge for off-grid tourist destinations in Africa such as remote Safari lodges. Located in the Olderkesi Wildlife Conservancy in Masai Mara, Kenya, the Cottar’s 1920s Safari Camp is currently nearly exclusively powered by energy produced from diesel gensets due to a missing connection to the electrical grid. In order to reduce the dependence on these cost-extensive and polluting energy sources, meeco will install a 50 kWp sun2rope mounted solar energy solution in combination with a sun2safe energy management system at the isolated and exclusive Safari lodge. read more

 The sun2roof solar system on Jumby Bay.

PV Energy equips Antiguan island with autonomous sun2live micro grid

The small private island Jumby Bay, located in the north of Antigua, will soon reach almost complete autarky in terms of power supply. After the installation of eleven sun2live and sun2roof solar installations with a total capacity of 404 kWp last year, the clean energy provider PV Energy now expands this solar energy project and is about to implement a sun2safe xl managed micro grid. Upon completion of this installation, the whole area will nearly exclusively be supplied with reliable and carbon-free quality energy, which makes the island a model example for sustainability.
