The commercial PV Power plant of L‘ORÈAL in the small city Settimo Torinese near Turin in the northwest of the country is the biggest system of its kind in Italy.
The rooftop installation is the main power supply for the production site and together with other renewable energy sources reduces the CO2-emmisions to zero. At the same time, the factory becomes energetically completely independent.
With energy production and energy use at the same place, another step to independence from feed-in tariffs was taken.
