Ever-increasing diesel operating costs? Major industrial consumers such as mine operators, farms, hotels, hospitals and energy suppliers for remote villages often ensure their energy demand with diesel generators. However, the costs of these are high and are clearly set to increase. $ Photovoltaic Diesel The price of crude oil has doubled in the last 10 years, the logistics of diesel is complex and often environmentally hazardous. On top of this are the costs for repair and essential maintenance through wear and tear. As a result, energy supply with diesel power in commercial companies already makes up the bulk of operating costs and reduces competitiveness. Today Electricity costs per kWh Time Disadvantages of a diesel generator High operating costs due to expensive diesel fuel High maintenance costs due to frequent servicing High freight and storage costs Rising costs of raw materials Limited availability of fossil fuels Harmful exhaust gases and noise pollution 2
Long-term cost reduction with solar power! The system prices of photovoltaic systems have dropped considerably in recent years. This means that in sunny regions, photovoltaic electricity can already today be generated at a cheaper rate than with diesel generators. The combination of solar power with a diesel system puts an end to increasing costs, helps save you money and increases your competitiveness through the cost advantage. Moreover, an intelligent photovoltaic system is easy to integrate and offers numerous advantages such as low-maintenance operation and simple extension of output capacity 0 Effective savings Equity Debt Years Return on investment with hybrid systems Advantages of a photovoltaic-diesel hybrid system Reduction of variable costs through considerably lower diesel consumption Reduction of maintenance costs through longer service intervals Self-sufficiency – the sun is always available Planning security through independence from commodity prices Innovative and green technology Less CO 2 emissions protects mankind and the environment 3
