A 420 kW solar system powers now the chocolate production at Butlers Chocolates headquarters in Dublin.

Hanwha Q Cells GmbH, German subsidiary of the world´s largest producer of high performance solar cells, Hanwha Q Cells Co., Ltd., provided 1.590 Q.PRO G4 high performance and high quality solar modules. The rooftop installation was constructed by Hanwha Q Celss partner Gaelectric Energy Solutions DAC, a company experienced in realizing PV systems for different applications in Ireland. The demonstration project will be Gaelectric's first "behind the meter" installation, the energy will be used exclusively to power Butlers Chocolates production facility.

Daire Friel, Business Development Manager for Gaelectric Energy, said: "By applying solar systems, companies can largely disconnect from rising energy prices and substantially save on electricity cost in the long run. The 420 kWp demonstration project at Butlers Chocolates is a strong evidence for that, as it will supply approximately 14% of the base load electricity requirement of the company. We look forward to a meaningful support scheme for renewable energy projects, in order to utilize the so far untapped solar potential of Ireland."
