− Martifer Solar supported Yes Energy to efficiently achieve its first solar PV project
− The 892 kWp plant is located on the rooftop of the Sicilia Outlet Village in Agira, Sicily
− The rooftop installation will produce sufficient clean energy to power over 800 inhabitants and avoid the annual emission of approximately 702 tons of CO2 emissions per year
Martifer Solar, a subsidiary of Martifer SGPS, completed an 892 kWp rooftop installation in Agira, Sicily for Yes Energy, a company resulting in the union between ESCO Yousave of Innowatio Group and Stilo Real Estate Group.
The plant was installed on the rooftop of the Sicilia Outlet Village of Agira, which is located in the region of Sicily. Martifer Solar was responsible for the design and construction of the installation and will also manage the subsequent operation and maintenance (O&M) services for the PV project.
The 892 kWp rooftop installation is Yes Energy´s first venture into solar photovoltaics and relied on the proven reputation and experience of Martifer Solar in the Italian market. The PV project, which produces almost 100% of the energy needs of the whole Sicilia Outlet Village, is assembled with more than 3,567 polycrystalline modules of European production. With a production capacity of 1,415 MWh per year, the plant will produce the equivalent to the energy consumption of over 800 inhabitants and will avoid approximately 702 tons of CO2emissions each year.
The CEO of Yes Energy, Tiziano Arriga stated, “This plant is the first experience of Yes Energy in the PV sector, for this reason we are even more satisfied to have realized both a good investment for Yes Energy and to have created efficiency in the Sicilia Outlet Village energy expenses.”
“We are pleased to help Yes Energy make their debut solar photovoltaic project in Italy a success. This experience is a confirmation of Martifer Solar´s ability to operate successfully and efficiently in the industrial segment,” said Valerio Senatore, General Manager of Martifer Solar Italy. “The reliability, proven track record and trusted reputation of Martifer Solar have been crucial factors to complete this rooftop plant, supported by the company´s skilled team devoted to maximize each clients´ investment.”
