Why Gorenje chose solar PV technology
Gorenje, the home appliances giant and one of the region's leading companies, takes its environmental impact very seriously. In order to lower its carbon footprint, the company chose to make the switch to a renewable energy source for part of its electricity production.
Moreover, as a large consumer of energy, Gorenje is particularly susceptible to electricity price fluctuations and pays large utility bills. By generating part of its electricity sustainably, it also reduces risks related to rising electricity prices and has a stable, reliable energy source.
The project was developed taking into account roof incline, solar radiation and the optimal orientation of the solar panels, following careful measurements and roof load calculations. Installation works were carried out with no interruption of the client's production or business. The solar panel is integrated into the grid network.
The solar PV panels have a life span of 25 years and will provide Gorenje with renewable electricity for over two decades. Even after 20 years in use, the solar panels' efficiency will exceed 70%.
