DEMCO Steel Solar PV Project by FREE energy

March 20, 2019

Winning Project in the 2nd edition of the Energy Awareness Awards (EAA)

Founded in 1922, DEMCO Steel has grown from a local steel stockholder to a globally geared source for steel-related services. DEMCO Steel is currently a local market leader handling a turnover of over 400,000 tons of steel per year.

Following the facility’s demand to decrease their energy bills and increase their resilience, FREE energy was commissioned to execute a solar photovoltaic system equipped with a fuel saver controller to decrease their electricity bills and their dependence on diesel generators.

The 1.02 MWp Hybrid Solar Multi-Source Fuel Saver System produces 1,150 MWh/year, resulting in a reduction of the CO2 emissions by 928 tonnes per year, making valuable input towards climate change mitigation.
