To become energy self-sufficient with solar power plants and to make a significant contribution to environmental protection by producing clean energy.
The Strategy for Decarbonisation and Transition to Climate Neutrality envisages the installation of solar power plants on the roofs of two postal logistics centres and three logistics post offices, covering a total surface area of 10,200 m2. Solar energy is a sustainable energy source with enormous potential that can be exploited to provide energy self-sufficiency and independence. It supplies cost-effective and environmentally friendly electricity.
The project design documentation has been acquired as part of the European Elena Sustainable Energy – East Slovenia (SE-ES) project. The solar power plants will enable Pošta Slovenije to generate electricity for its own needs, sell electricity on the market at times when they do not need it, and reduce costs in equipped buildings.
Solar power plants have the lowest negative impact on the environment of any type of electricity-generating plant. They do not produce greenhouse gas emissions and do not pollute water.
RESULTS and IMPACT
The five solar power plants are together expected to produce 1,580 MWh a year. By having them, Pošta Slovenije will become partly energy self-sufficient and independent of market fluctuations. Electricity costs will fall by more than 70%.
