The Power of sun2roof® Solar Installations for Industrial Buildings

Factories, warehouses, and industrial buildings often have significant roof space. Their high energy consumption makes them ideal locations for sun2roof® solar panel installations. Over the past few years, more and more businesses have realized the potential to harness free renewable energy. This is achieved simply by adding solar panels to their roofs. Businesses operating in factories and warehouses are bringing their energy costs down by producing their own free electricity on-site.

Whether you are looking to cut costs, reduce your carbon footprint, or secure your future energy supply, meeco is here to help. The meeco group offer commercial solar installations with proven high-yielding solar panels.

A Case Study: The 652kWp sun2roof® System

This is the case for the 652kWp sun2roof® system. It was installed for one of the production sites of a German-based medium-sized industrial group. The factory of this group in Kleve (Germany) is specialized in sheet steel packaging for industrial applications. The sun2roof® systems were installed on several different roofs with specific peculiarities and complex technical requirements. The sun2roof® installation has been since the beginning producing clean electricity well beyond and above forecast and expectations.
The initial best performance expectation was about 810 kWh/kWp. However, since it came into operation, the plant has achieved a performance of 867.5 kWh/kWp.

Meeting Specific Roof Requirements

To meet the specific roofs’ requirements, this sun2roof® tailor-made PV solution consists of a little more than 2,000 top-tier solar modules. Oursun ultra-light modules are directly bonded on the structurally critical roofs. Meanwhile, standard Oursun modules are fixed with single rail structures. This sun2roof® installation has been generating over 545 MWh since its installation in 2023. As a result, it has saved 165 tons of polluting CO2 emissions.

Beyond Simple PV Installation: The meeco Group’s Expertise

“It should have been a simple PV installation,” states Mr. J.N., CEO of the company, “and we entrusted The meeco Group with the management of the full project as general constructor. In fact, the meeco team, in the end, had to and did so carry out additional unplanned works such as: the asbestos roof renovation, the renewal of the ventilation system, the installation of smoke vents and window frames not to mention the support given with certification, technical grid statements, and direct marketing.”

The Transformative Impact of sun2roof® Installations

“Installing a photovoltaic system on our roofs allowed us to significantly reduce energy costs, increase our independence from the electricity grid, increase the value of the property and last but not least, also contribute to the fight against climate change,” remarks Mr. J.N. “We are so satisfied with the results and the service received that we are already working with The Meeco Group on a new project to install a sun2roof® system also on another of our production plants in Germany.”
