Energy Systems and meeco complete 4 solar rooftop projects in Saudi Arabia

Asia,Clean Energy,Continents,Projects,Sustainability — The meeco Group on April 25, 2019 at 15:46

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.

New milestone: meeco simultaneously energised two large-scale solar installations on two continents

Clean Energy,Europe,Projects,Sustainability,Technical Solutions — The meeco Group on January 9, 2019 at 13:52

Swiss energy provider put pv systems with total size of 4.44 mwp into operation

Two entirely different areas, one solar provider: Bethesda on the Caribbean island Antigua and a textile company in Leutkirch located in the South of Germany as of now benefit from clean solar power. Shortly before the end of 2018, the Swiss-based clean energy provider The meeco Group successfully managed the same-day commissioning of a ground-mounted 4 MWp sun2live solar utility and a roof-mounted sun2roof solar power plant with a total size of 440 kWp. While the Caribbean commissioning team worked at moist conditions with up to 30 degrees and 70 per cent humidity, the German commissioning staff had to deal with heavy snow and icy flat roofs.

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.

Clean energy projects promote Sustainable Development Goals

A reliable or seemingly stable and reliable energy supply seems self-evident for four-fifths of the world’s population. However, there are still numerous countries, where unlimited access to energy remains a luxury for wealthy people. In volume terms, more than 1.4 billion people worldwide live without any electricity supply, states the International Energy Agency.

The sunset in Saudi Arabia.

sun2roof solar equipment shipped to Khobar City to be installed on three roofs

With up to 2,800 kWh/m2 per year Saudi Arabia has one of the highest solar radiations worldwide. Recognising the tremendous potential of solar energy in Saudi Arabia, we have entered into negotiations with Saudi Arabian entrepreneurs several years ago. Nationally subsidised power prices and the huge oil reserves in the country though have limited the incentive to invest into clean energy solutions such as photovoltaic until yet.
