The manufacturer of photovoltaic solar modules has conducted through its subsidiary Eurener Italy, the installation of 3,7 MW in a greenhouse roof in Piedimonte San Germano in the Lazio region. It also has both free-standing projects and greenhouse installations in Puglia, Sardinia, Lombardy and Veneto as well as many industrial projects mainly across the north of Italy totaling 10 MW. A government target to replace all asbestos roofs before 2016 is a powerful driver in photovoltaic market. A further 12MW greenhouse project in Frosinone, due for completion shortly, is expected to yield in excess of 1,350 hours of electricity production per year, with a guaranteed efficiency of plant from the end of the panels to the grid of 94%.
According to Marco Lupini, CEO of Eurener Italy, “our yield, including government subsidy is 0,5114 € and our return on investment per megawatt is 690.000 €, with operational costs between 10 and 12% of income“. He adds that these costs include taxes, depreciation, interest and maintenance of the plant giving a return rate of 32 to 39%. He ends asserting that “we are very serious in our approach to this market and are in it for the long term. Our panels are manufactured in Europe (specifically Eurener factories in Spain and Portugal) to very high standards, which mean that we can offer a solid 25 year guarantee unlike some of the smaller operators who use inferior products from the Far East with no insurance to the user“.
In the Zeroemission PV Rome fair Eurener shows in its own booth (A2/B1 Hall 5) their last released products fully developed by the R&D Department which among the highlights are the solar streetlight EUROPE and the architectural integration photovoltaic module Black Panel with power up to 250Wp, +3% positive tolerance and external insurance.
