Solar panels in Balassagyarmat
Széchenyi 2020 “Environment and Energy Operative Programme” and investment (KEOP-2014-4.10.0/K)
With our involvement, Dr Kenessey Albert Hospital in Balassagyarmat, within the framework of the Environment and Energy Operative Programme, was granted a 100% non-reimbursable support of 172,710,220 forints from the European Union for the development of photovoltaic systems that directly transform the sun’s rays into electricity.
In May 2015, the installation of the systems was begun, with the placement of a total of 900 solar panels on seven buildings. A key objective of the support was to lower maintenance costs with the electricity produced. In addition to the reduction in the emission of gases causing harmful greenhouse effects, it is expected that the solar panels will cover approx. 15-20% of the hospital’s total annual consumption.
