SUNNY 2020 ENSURES EXTREMELY HIGH ENERGY OUTPUT

E-nergy by Nature Annual Review 2020: 
At the end of 2019, Melkveerbedrijf Grashoek and K.I. SAMEN started using the solar energy park E-nergy by Nature. An array of 12,000 solar panels were installed on the dairy farm and the surrounding barns as a way of considerably reducing the company's CO2 emissions. The energy output of over 3 million kWh is enough to satisfy our own energy demands, and supply power to no fewer than 1,000 households. According to the ‘Annual Review 2020’ report issued by Full Power Support bv, the extremely sunny weather ensured the solar energy output exceeded the expectations.

The difference is 77,000 trees
The report calculates the reduction in CO2 emissions converted into the number of trees. In other words, how many trees would otherwise be needed to absorb these CO2 emissions. For the E-nergy by Nature project, in 2020 our efforts resulted in a score of 77,156 trees.

CO2 reduction
The report also calculates how much CO2 was saved per location - Vliegertsdijk 18, Lorbaan 26 and 27- in kilos. By investing in the solar park, we managed to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1,500 tons in 2020. So, we can proudly state that the solar panel project makes a fine contribution to our goal: Sustainable production together.
