Sunlight provides a key source of energy: Since 2013, one of the largest photovoltaic plants in South Hesse has been working hard on our Egelsbach roof. 2500 modules comprising a total area of 9000 square metres cover our entire on-site electricity consumption. Our annual energy use of around 515 kWp is roughly the equivalent to the consumption of 130 households. We aim to keep our CO2 emissions down to a minimum, where possible balancing them with various climate protection projects. Our exclusive use of green gas similarly represents another mindful contribution towards global climate awareness and protection.
Green energy enhances eco-friendly driving: Since 2019, the general public in our district has also been able to benefit from environmentally friendly driving thanks to the abundant solar power converted by our delta roof. Moreover, the first charging station for electric cars donated by a company in Egelsbach is located on our very premises on the Kurt-Schumacher-Ring road.
Leading by example: Heiner Beckmann was patron of the very first Egelsbach Climate & Environment Day. Offering stacks of information and initiatives such as planting 100 trees, the entire day in late September 2019 was geared to exploring how every single one of us can contribute towards climate and environmental protection on an individual level.
