Installation of a solar photovoltaic station
Bodor is a Moroccan SME leader in the import and distribution of high value-added agricultural inputs such as vegetable seeds, field seeds, plant nutrition products (fertilizers) and crop protection products (plant protection products). Thanks to its commercial force, the company ensures a coverage of all the agricultural regions of Morocco.
Bodor’s strategy is also to support its producer customers by enhancing their production, in particular through the packaging and cold storage of agricultural products on behalf of producer customers. In this sense, Bodor has set up eight specific refrigerating rooms for the storage of garlic in the region of Fez / Meknes.
In order to optimize its resources and reduce its carbon footprint, Bodor decided to use solar photovoltaic energy as an alternative energy source to cover part of its electricity needs. The project consists in the installation of a solar photovoltaic system on the roofs of the eight cold rooms of the Bodor company.
This type of installation called “solar self-consumption”, covers part of the electricity needs of the site. This means that the electrical equipment works with 2 sources of electricity, the public electricity network and the photovoltaic generator, the priority being automatically given to the solar kWh. The total power of the photovoltaic installation is 115 KWp.
The implementation of this project, financed by MAGHREBAIL, reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 101 T eq CO2 per year compared to the baseline and saves approximately 176.75 MWh in energy.
