  • Photovoltaic appetite plant to revoke CO emissions, palliate nation’s appetite supplies
  • Project aligns with Hyundai’s prophesy of widespread enlargement of renewable energy, company’s eco-friendly goals
  • May 8, 2013 – Hyundai Motor Company, South Korea’s largest automaker, announced that it will implement a nation’s largest rooftop photovoltaic appetite plant during a production bureau in Asan, Korea, to enhance a use of renewable appetite and take measures to assistance revoke tellurian warming.

    Hyundai’s Asan plant will horde a appetite plant, while Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) will squeeze a electricity constructed by a solar modules and sell it to areas nearby a plant, including Asan city. Working with Korea Midland Power Co., Ltd. (KOMIPO), a thermal appetite company, Hyundai skeleton to implement about 40,000 solar photovoltaic modules on a rooftops of Asan’s press, welding, public and engine buildings by a finish of this year.

    The 213,000 block scale area to be versed with a modules accounts for as most as 68 percent of a sum roof space, and a rise ability of a total modules reaches 10 MW. With such capacity, a finished plant will be able of provision adult to 11.5 million KWh of electricity per year, or yield a fast supply of electricity for adult to 3,200 households.

    As 100 percent of a photovoltaic plant during Asan will be built on existent rooftops, a construction conjunction requires any additional land nor causes environmental issues. The choice of a Asan plant is appropriate, as Asan manufactures a eco-friendly Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, as good as Sonata and Grandeur (Azera in some markets).

    To furnish a same volume of electricity – 11.5 million KWh – a thermoelectric appetite plant releases 5,600 tons of CO dioxide, glimmer that can be prevented by a use of a photovoltaic appetite plant. The rebate of 5,600 tons of CO dioxide emissions is homogeneous to a outcome of planting 1.12 million hunger trees on a environment.

    Moreover, sprinklers that work to cold down a solar modules will also assistance a plant save appetite by obscure a indoor heat during prohibited seasons.
