Solar panels power Gebruder Weiss warehouses

Gebruder Weiss has committed to sustainable energy by leasing the roofs of its Maria Lanzendorf warehouses to a solar energy company.

Around 2.4 million kilowatt hours have been generated since the beginning of the year using a surface area of 21,500 sq m, the equivalent of 1,300 three-person households in Austria.

Solar energy is being used in other locations, with three additional installations across Austria in Kennelbach, Vorarlberg; Maria Seal, Carinthia; and Wels, Upper Austria; as well as two more in Memmingen, Germany.

Karl Meiringer, branch manager in Maria Lanzendorf says: “Sustainability is one of the core values at Gebrüder Weiss. This is why the decision to lease the flat roofs for this purpose was made not only on economic grounds, but also on environmental ones. Their size makes them ideal for photovoltaic systems.”

The 13 photovoltaic power stations convert part of the solar radiation into electrical energy using solar cells.
