Intersolar Europe 2013: IBC SOLAR Makes Companies and Farmers Self-sufficient
Bad Staffelstein / Germany, June 18th, 2013 – IBC SOLAR AG, a global leader in photovoltaic (PV) systems, offers companies and farmers PV storage systems that are tailored to their individual requirements and help to maximise self-consumption of their solar energy. Long-term, companies can gain a competitive advantage by optimising the use of their self-generated solar power. With a high self-consumption rate, they are no longer dependent on rising energy prices and thus have greater planning security. IBC SOLAR will present its innovative self-consumption solutions for companies and farmers at this year’s Intersolar Europe in Munich, the world’s largest trade fair for the solar industry, from June 19th to June 21st in hall B6 (stand 310).
IBC SOLAR and its Premium Partners create bespoke self-consumption and solar storage solutions for companies and farmers, as each customer has different energy needs. The customer must be sure that solar power will be available when needed. As such, a system design tailored to the specific needs of the customer is essential for companies and farmers to ensure optimal use of their solar power and the highest possible self-consumption rate. IBC SOLAR and its Premium Partners can guarantee this with their comprehensive, custom-designed PV and solar storage systems.
"In Germany, self-generated solar energy is now cheaper than electricity from an energy provider because of lower PV system prices. One kilowatt hour now costs between 10 and 13 cents, compared to 15 to 19 cents that medium-sized companies pay to energy suppliers,” says Xaver Lindner, Portfolio Manager at IBC SOLAR. “By investing in a PV system and, where appropriate, a storage system, companies and farmers gain a significant advantage. They are ensured low, stable electricity prices for more than twenty years and the greatest possible independence from electricity suppliers. The potential savings make self-consumption systems a viable investment.”
Combinations of PV and solar storage systems in the field of off-grid energy supply have been tried and tested for years. Today, fully developed and reliable technology is available for modules, inverters and batteries. Customers who opt for a PV storage system from IBC SOLAR receive full service from one source. The company was founded as International Battery Consulting and has over thirty years of experience. IBC SOLAR’s Premium Partners are responsible for all tasks on the way to the first kilowatt hour of solar energy, from individual consultancy to tailor-made planning and implementation. The long life of all components and the comprehensive quality assurance ensures the optimal investment. At the customers’ request, the Premium Partners also assume responsibility for the system maintenance and servicing.
At Intersolar Europe (Munich), IBC SOLAR’s trade fair team will provide visitors with further information about PV self-consumption solutions, product innovations and new services (hall B6, stand 310).
