      Energiedienst has put a new photovoltaic system into operation at its hydroelectric power station in Rheinfelden (Baden). Together with its trade partner Icarus from Freiburg, the southern Baden energy supplier had been building the system in several construction stages since February of this year on the roof of two garages at the hydroelectric power station.

      The new PV system has a total of 48 modules with an output of 375 watts each. The peak output of the entire system is 18 kilowatts peak. The electricity generated is fed to the existing public charging stations with four charging points in the adjacent parking lot. From now on, electric vehicles can be charged there with solar power

      "We are pleased that we were able to successfully complete the construction of the new PV system and that we can pass on the electricity generated by the system directly to the charging stations. Electric cars that charge here drive with the power of the sun in the truest sense of the word,” says Marco Keller, head of the PV Germany division at Energiedienst.

      The system is financially supported by the independent certification Green Electricity Label with at least 4,000 euros. The seal of approval guarantees that 100% green electricity is generated and purchased. The green electricity label was founded in 1998 by leading environmental, consumer and peace organizations. This makes it the first seal for green electricity on the German energy market.
