Yesterday at INNI group 2000 high efficiency panels on the roof of the printing works were officially connected by Flemish Minister of Energy Bart Tommelein. These solar panels account for 600KW and account for 20% of energy requirements. An innovative aspect of this initiative is that our employees can help invest in a green future.
To this end, INNI group entered into a partnership with GreenPulse, which specialises in developing and financing solar panel projects for companies, by means of third-party financing. Manu Jans, CEO of GreenPulse, explains: ‘Individuals and employees of the roof owner invest between 2000 euro and 50,000 euro and can count on a guaranteed net reduction of 3.9% on an 8-year loan. The fact that employees can participate is a first that will certainly be imitated’.
Or to quote Bart Tommelein: ‘A specialist company invests in measures and maintains the installation for a certain period of time. As a receiving company, you can repay the services with the savings on the electricity bill. It’s nice to see how employees can invest in this and share in the profits!
We smile at the fact that the ministers were stuck in the elevator for a while to visit the roof!
