Solar panels and DC’s, an ideal marriage?
You would expect that distribution centers are perfectly suited for solar panels, as they have a large shade free roof surface. And even more, on ground floor level lighting and material handling equipment consume lots of electrical energy. However, in reality there are only a few distribution centers in the Netherlands with solar panels actually installed on its roof. This article (in Dutch only) explains why this percentage is so low, and what changes we can expect for the near future? This article is written in cooperation with Vdb-Energie.
