Focsani, July 31st, 2015
Insta Electric S.A. Focsani, a traditional manufacturer with more than three decades of experience in the production and development of low-voltage electrical equipment, implements, with the support of Norway Grants, a project of sustainable development of the company, which in addition to the economic component, includes social responsibility and environment protection measures. We are concerned with reconciling economic and social progress while preserving the natural balance, and our project “Harnessing solar energy – a greener business model”, supported by a grant from Norway through the Norvegian Financial Mechanism 2009 – 2014, in the frame of Green Industry Innovation programme Romania, proposes the installation of photovoltaic panels on the roof of the factory, totaling an area of 3800 m2, with an installed capacity of 0.499 MWh, which will generate about 250 MWh production / year. Thus, most of the electricity used in our production and management processes will come from a renewable energy source, the solar energy. In addition, by the thermal insulation of our building, installing a new hybrid heating system which will use solar energy and wood waste, as well as the rehabilitation of the production hall’s lighting system with low consumption solutions, we aim to further reduce our energy consumption, amplifying our effort to protect the environment. While we are greening the foot-print left by our company’s activity on the environment, we also work to promote this concept in our city, especially among children and youth. The partnership with the Association for Sustainable Development „Focul Viu” came naturally, their work to increase public’s awareness of environmental issues and the benefits of a greener and healthier life style having a long tradition and recognition in Focsani. Insta Electric joins the monthly bicycling event „Critical Mass” organised on July 31st, 2015, at 17:30, by “Live Fire”, with materials and information about solar energy, a clean, free and unlimited power source we can all enjoy.
