REFERENCE SYSTEM IN GREECE RUNS SUCCESSFULLY
Since the beginning of October 2020, Dimitris, owner of the Brouklis tavern in Arillas (north-west Corfu) has been pleased about free self-produced electricity. 27 solar modules supply his tavern with electricity in summer. A storage battery with 5.7kWh capacity ensures that the fridges continue to run in the evening or in the event of a power failure and that the guests are not left in the dark. Outside the season, the electricity is fed into his private household. In this way, the electricity consumption from the public grid can be reduced to the bare minimum all year round. The system also serves as a reference for our project activities in Greece.
OUR PROJECT IN GREECE
In the context of the RES-program in Greece, we are designing, planning, installing and maintaining photovoltaic systems including battery storage and optional charging points for electric motorbikes (Power-to-Mobility) in northwest Corfu. Additionally, these plants will be used for demonstration and training purposes and serve our public relations efforts.
For any given solar panel surface, we will be offering three expansion stages.
These PV systems will lay the ground for future implementation of an independent and decentralised local smart grid.
