Katzbeck has one of the largest rooftop photovoltaic systems in Austria

21. Jun 2013

As pioneers of innovative energy efficiency solutions, we place our trust in photovoltaics.

“Clean. Silent. Sustainable. Our photovoltaic system is a benefit in every respect”, says Hans Peter KATZBECK, visibly delighted as he talks about the 1,800 m² solar power plant that was recently put into operation on the roof of our headquarters in Rudersdorf.

Technical data. The technical data speak a clear language as well. The 280kWp output is predicted to produce 300,000 kilowatt hours each year (equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of around 85 households). This will prevent 300 tons of CO2 emissions and cover roughly one quarter of the company’s electricity requirements.

Green visions. “Careful management of natural resources is a principle that permeates all areas of the Katzbeck Group, of course. After all, the main component of our quality products is wood, a natural and renewable resource”, adds Hans Peter Katzbeck.

But that’s not everything. We have been busy in other ways as well: Conversion of factory lighting to LED; commissioning of an e-charging station for cars and bikes; and purchase of one electric car and five e-bikes.
