Energy self-sufficiency: we produce what we consume
Do you know that 80% of the energy we use in our company comes from an efficient photovoltaic system? We have installed a solar panels system as a daily choice of sustainability, to get as close as possible to the threshold of complete energy self-sufficiency.
Therefore, the sun is our main source of clean energy. In this way we can be sustainable both in relation to nature and in relation to business costs. Producing energy with our photovoltaic system means limited CO2 emissions, and thus reduced air pollution and environmental impact of 47 Anno Domini.
But what exactly is photovoltaic? How does it work?
Photovoltaic is the process of converting solar radiation into electricity, which exploits certain semiconductor materials physical properties, such as silicon.
The system consists of two main elements:
the cell: usually silicon made, it has the task of transforming the sun rays into electricity;
the module or panel: consisting of several cells assembled together and connected to the surface with a grid that conducts electrons. The cells are connected to each other by metal ribbons, in order to create appropriate electric series, inserted in a sandwich structure in double glass, framed by metal profiles.
The use of premium materials, continuous plant monitoring with a rated power of 80 kW and the assistance of qualified technicians allow us to rely on a high-performance photovoltaic system, that makes us particularly proud in pursuing our sustainable viticulture.
