La Planchadora joins self-consumption together with TSO Group to cover their essential needs during this health crisis in the most sustainable way

TSO Group has designed, installed and is currently monitoring the 23.20 kW SUNO® Ultralight panel photovoltaic solar plant, which already supplies electricity during the day to La Planchadora, a well-known dry cleaner and laundry in Seville for its express home service.

Thanks to this photovoltaic plant, La Planchadora covers 97% of its daytime electricity demand, obtaining great benefits in terms of energy savings and efficiency. In this sense, the annual production of the solar plant will reach more than 36,000 kWh and will reduce CO2 emissions by more than 14,000 kg per year, a figure that is equivalent to planting 433 trees each year. According to Jesus Jimenez, manager of La Planchadora, “we are very happy to have a self-consumption plant on our roof which, while allowing us to save money, also contributes to the environment by generating clean energy.”

Due to its adaptability to any surface and high efficiency, the panel installed in the photovoltaic solar plant of La Planchadora has been the SUNO® Ultralight, exclusive of TSO Group. Its flexible and ultralight material has allowed a 100% architectural integration, without the need of structures or perforations. These solar panels are only adhered to the roof with a special polymer to avoid damaging it, as it is treated with an insulating material against high temperatures.

This company will also have the ECO20® seal from TSO Group that will certify the production of photovoltaic solar energy in self-consumption of its plant, which is guaranteed by ECA Bureau Veritas. This requires a minimum period of three months in which to verify the consumption and condition of the solar plant. The company expresses its satisfaction with this sustainable commitment and the manager assures that the next step is to “discard plastic packaging in favour of a more renewable material, such as paper.”

La Planchadora is among the companies that have continued its activity since the decree of State of Alert by the COVID-19, adding to their daily work the manufacture of acetate masks and face protectors, which they distribute among their customers, health personnel and the bodies of the Police and the Civil Guard of the Andalusian capital. In addition, the manager of this company has announced that “we already have prepared masks and protective screens for children”, on the occasion of the permission to walk that has been granted by the Spanish Government and that will be official from Monday 27th. 

The Municipal Police of Pamplona with TSO’s ultralight solar panel

The Pamplona City Council has chosen TSO’s ultralight panel to install a photovoltaic plant for self-consumption on the new sustainable roof of the Public Safety building, where the Municipal Police is located. The project has been carried out by Construcciones Leache, S. L. with an investment of 197,169 Euros.

The Municipal Police of Pamplona has already the ultralight solar panel of TSO

The Pamplona City Council has chosen TSO’s ultralight panel to install a photovoltaic plant for self-consumption on the new sustainable roof of the Public Safety building, where the Municipal Police is located. The project has been carried out by Construcciones Leache, S. L. with an investment of 197,169 Euros.

This construction company has provided the Public Safety building in Pamplona with a modular roof made of wood from sustainable forests, in which they are integrated 266 ultralight flexible solar panels, which are exclusive products of the Sevillian company TSO, The South Oracle.

 

         

The photovoltaic plant of about 80 kW, with an estimated production of 95 MWh per year, will cover up to 20% of the energy consumed by the building. In terms of aesthetics, TSO has guaranteed a zero-visual impact with the total integration of their ultralight panels on the new sustainable roof. This is possible thanks to the technical features of these exclusive solar panels, which are flexible, glassfree, weigh less than 5 kilos and can be customized and adapted to any surface, reducing the installation time by up to 70% compared to that used in photovoltaic installations with conventional panels.

For this project, the ultralight TSO panel selected has no profile, has its junction box on the front and is composed by 60 monocrystalline cells, giving it a maximum power of 290 watts. The photovoltaic plant is made up of 38 rows of seven panels each, all of them bonded with a special polymer along a 900 square meters surface. This roof is supported and fixed on the existing one, serving also as waterproofing and improving the thermal insulation of the building. It is a ‘2 in 1’ system called ‘plug and play’ (roof plus photovoltaic installation) connected to the building’s interior network.

The electrical connection of these panels also presents an innovative solution. It has been integrated into a smart micro-network in the same building using BeePlanet’s reused second life battery storage, V2G technology charging posts for municipal electric vehicles and micro-network control technology developed by CENER. All this action is part of the European Horizon 2020 project called Stardust, to which the Pamplona City Council is a partner.

Furthermore, the Sevillian company TSO is a pioneer in the participation of photovoltaic integration projects in surfaces, buildings or existing structures. Some examples of this are the photovoltaic solar plant integrated in the carports of the Emirates Towers parking lot in Dubai and in the façade of Tower 2 in Seville, being this latter the first architectural integration in an existing façade in Europe.
