La Planchadora joins self-consumption together with TSO Group to cover their essential needs during this health crisis in the most sustainable way
TSO Group has designed, installed and is currently monitoring the 23.20 kW SUNO® Ultralight panel photovoltaic solar plant, which already supplies electricity during the day to La Planchadora, a well-known dry cleaner and laundry in Seville for its express home service.
Thanks to this photovoltaic plant, La Planchadora covers 97% of its daytime electricity demand, obtaining great benefits in terms of energy savings and efficiency. In this sense, the annual production of the solar plant will reach more than 36,000 kWh and will reduce CO2 emissions by more than 14,000 kg per year, a figure that is equivalent to planting 433 trees each year. According to Jesus Jimenez, manager of La Planchadora, “we are very happy to have a self-consumption plant on our roof which, while allowing us to save money, also contributes to the environment by generating clean energy.”
Due to its adaptability to any surface and high efficiency, the panel installed in the photovoltaic solar plant of La Planchadora has been the SUNO® Ultralight, exclusive of TSO Group. Its flexible and ultralight material has allowed a 100% architectural integration, without the need of structures or perforations. These solar panels are only adhered to the roof with a special polymer to avoid damaging it, as it is treated with an insulating material against high temperatures.
This company will also have the ECO20® seal from TSO Group that will certify the production of photovoltaic solar energy in self-consumption of its plant, which is guaranteed by ECA Bureau Veritas. This requires a minimum period of three months in which to verify the consumption and condition of the solar plant. The company expresses its satisfaction with this sustainable commitment and the manager assures that the next step is to “discard plastic packaging in favour of a more renewable material, such as paper.”
La Planchadora is among the companies that have continued its activity since the decree of State of Alert by the COVID-19, adding to their daily work the manufacture of acetate masks and face protectors, which they distribute among their customers, health personnel and the bodies of the Police and the Civil Guard of the Andalusian capital. In addition, the manager of this company has announced that “we already have prepared masks and protective screens for children”, on the occasion of the permission to walk that has been granted by the Spanish Government and that will be official from Monday 27th.
