Flagship project in Alsace

Project description

The owner of an organic farm in the North of the French Region Alsace has decided to adopt clean energy for his business.

The system generates power to heat and ventilate the greenhouse, to light his workshop and to irrigate plants.

The Energy Container has been configured to provide enough power both in summer and in winter. An electric vehicle charging station can also be added in the future.

The customer has chosen the Intech Energy Container in order to cover his entire power consumption sustainably.

Commissioning: May 2019
