Aplast is switching to green electricity

28. 8. 2023

The installation of solar power plants is one of the important environmental standards and steps in the sustainable operation of the company. We at Aplast of the Zagožen Group are aware of this, which is why, after a year of operation of our 612 kWp solar power plant, we decided to supplement it with a new 507 kWp solar power plant. With this, we filled all the existing roof surfaces with a total power of 1.1 MV.

The Aplast solar power plant of the Zagožen group is one of the largest in the municipality of Žalec. With the solar power plant, we take care of the environment, as we reduce our dependence on traditional energy sources. Since solar power plants have a long service life, this also allows for long-term stability and reliability in energy supply. With this investment, we are one step further on the path to reducing our carbon footprint.

This is how the Elektro Celje team took care of connecting the solar power plant. The energy obtained from the solar power plant is used in the processes of the production of rotoliv, the assembly workshop and the office building, and the surplus will be returned to the grid. In the future, we plan to introduce a battery charger to store energy that will be used in the production process. Aplast has two solar power plants with a total power of 1.1 megawatts, which means that they could power approximately 100 households. We are proud of our investment, which was also co-financed by the Republic of Slovenia and the European Union from the Cohesion Fund.
