Gakon has placed 1088 solar panels on the roof of the factory, the office and the shipping. The construction of no less than 1088 solar panels went through two phases. During the first phase, the mounting systems were installed by partner Van der Valk Solar Systems from Monster. The solar panels were installed in phase two. Quite a job, as no fewer than 1088 solar panels had to be installed. This installation was professionally carried out by Wattco NL from Maasdijk.
Due to the placement of the solar panels, Gakon now uses a sustainable energy source. Renewable energy ensures that there is less emission of harmful substances. This improves air quality and counteracts global warming.
For companies and investors in horticulture, Gakon offers the solution for generating usable energy from the power of the sun. A system has been developed for this in which a solar panel can be integrated into a greenhouse cover. This technique is widely accessible to a wide target group.
