Raute HQ in Finland is powered by solar energy
In June 2020, Raute invested in solar energy. The roof of the Nastola factory hall offers the perfect spot for a 1000 m2 solar power plant. After a year of operation, we are really satisfied with the results.
- Electricity generation has been as predicted, even above what we expected!
- During the year, the power plant has produced 150MWh which is 5.5% of the annual consumption of electricity
- On the best days, the power plant produces 1/3 of the day's consumption of electricity
- Despite the heavily snowy winter, the electricity generation period was surprisingly long. Only between November and mid-March the Sun here in the North wasn't strong enough to beat the darkness
