244 solar panels

Employees at SHV’s head office in Utrecht the Netherlands have a target to meet: to reduce the electricity bill by 10% by September 2013. Key to achieving this is consuming less energy – and using a renewable energy source. SHV has installed 244 solar panels on the roof of the office building. These panels are expected to generate 40,000 kWh per year, the equivalent of 12 average households. A monitor in the main lobby will show the production and consumption of electricity produced through the solar panels.
