BUCHAREST (Romania), October 28 (SeeNews) - Romanian IT&C company Datacor said on Thursday it has started to provide turnkey solar photovoltaic (PV) energy solutions.
Romanian companies are showing an increasing interest in complying with environmental good practices, to become certified as green companies, or to simply reduce operating costs, Datacor said in a press release.
Datacor has signed contracts for photovoltaic projects of more than 30MW already, it added.
Datacor aims to help companies plan their complete renewable energy project, enabling them to reduce business operating expenses, increase energy independence and improve predictability of power costs.
"Installing solar panels helps to alleviate the strain on the local electric grid. If a solar installation is big enough, not only could it power the whole building, but companies could sell electricity back into the grid and receive credit towards future power needs, while also helping to improve the variety of local energy sources" Datacor CEO Bogdan Bilegan said.
Even though investing in solar panels has increased up-front costs, the updated system will ensure more predictable electricity costs and reduced business operation expenses. Most solar power systems pay for themselves within five to 10 years, depending on the size of the system and overall power needs, according to Datacor’s experts.
Datacor, established in 2002, employs 81 in Bistrita, Bucharest and Cluj.
In January, Datacor said it plans to launch its products on the European market and expects a 15% rise in turnover this year, to 51.75 million lei ($12 million/10.5 million euro).
