Thanks to adjustments in the tuning, however, no more running hours were required this month, something we at Volta are more than proud of!
So the power supply has been running entirely on the generation of energy through the PV panels. Despite the rental cost of a Volta Solar Generator being a bit higher than a diesel generator or HVO B100 biodiesel generator, considerable financial savings were thus realised.
For instance, almost €1,000 was saved compared to a diesel aggregate over the same period and over €1,700 compared to a biodiesel aggregate. The fuel costs that would have been required for a diesel aggregate are higher than the all-in price of a Volta Zon aggregate.
So a nice saving was made financially, but nature was also very happy with the Volta 15 kVA genset. Indeed, thanks to the clean generation of solar energy, almost 1,800 litres of diesel were saved at Boskalis’ works in de Steeg, but also almost 5,800 fewer kg of CO² were emitted and over 8 kg less NOx. A very nice outcome in other words!
