A Major step towards sustainable Garden Centers
The energy transition is one of the biggest topical issues today, and just as big is the interest in future-proof technologies, especially photovoltaics (PV).
Building regulations around PV are progressively changing. Some German federal states are already making PV installations compulsory in new builds. In Baden-Württemberg, for instance, new non-residential buildings will be required to install PV systems on their roofs from 2022, while in North Rhine-Westphalia, it will also be mandatory for car parks with more than 35 bays to have PV facilities from 2022. Equally interesting is the change to the surcharge on PV self-consumption mandated by the German Renewable Energy Act (EEG), with the threshold being increased to 30 kWp.
In addition to regulatory obligations, investing in a PV system also makes good financial and environmental sense. Sharp rises in electricity prices and falling investment costs for PV systems make generating your own solar power look increasingly attractive!
