At the beginning of this year La Fondation le Camp took a big step towards its energy transition
With the cost of electricity tripling by 2022, it was important to look at ways to reduce these costs. The option of solar panels was then obvious in order to respond, in addition, to the challenges of the energy transition.
Thus, the main building, Beausite and Les Cerisiers were fitted with solar panels on their roof surfaces at the beginning of 2023. The installation of the panels on the roof of Le Vaudois, which was previously renovated, should be completed in the coming weeks.
Although the investment is substantial, the surface area of the photovoltaic installations on these four buildings should enable us to achieve 35% autonomy, with a total estimated production of 132'00kWha per year.
The installation of these panels also coincides with the values of the Foundation, to remain close to nature and in harmony with the environment.
