At Riko Ribnica, we installed a new solar power plant on the roof of the production plant. An investment that will contribute to the long-term goal of reducing CO₂ emissions and saving energy costs.

The solar power plant consists of 357 modules based on PERC (Passivated Emitter and Rear Contact) technology, which absorb 20.5% of the incident light and convert it into electricity.

All 357 modules produce about 170,000 kWh of electricity per year, which covers about 70% of the total electricity consumption in our company. This will reduce our carbon footprint by around 80 tonnes of CO₂ each year.

Comparison of emissions over the period shown in the diagram below:

The new solar power plant represents an important step in the implementation of the outlined sustainable strategy. We have been striving for a sustainable transformation of the company for a long time, and based on this, we have already implemented several measures:

  • Modernization of the vehicle fleet with more environmentally friendly vehicles
  • Purchase of an electric forklift
  • Digitization of business
  • Reduction and separation of waste
  • Use of environmentally friendly oils and paints
