Solar power

We provide solutions that use solar energy, and demand for these is increasing. In the future, electricity will increasingly be generated from renewable energy sources. The cost of solar power has remained stable while systems have become more efficient.

Photovoltaic systems are useful all year round, even in Nordic conditions

As photovoltaics have evolved, solar power has become an economically viable source of renewable energy. For example, in Oulu, northern Finland, the same amount of photovoltaic electricity can be utilized in one year as in northern Germany.

Here’s a list of things that make photovoltaic cells a good alternative, even when it is not summer:

  • The cool climate easily cools heat-absorbing solar panels and improves panel efficiency
  • The rainy climate rinses solar panels and keeps them clean
  • The rough surface of the solar panels effectively collects the sun's diffuse radiation, even in the winter
  • Different alignment options make efficient use of radiation from the morning and evening sun
  • By making the installation angle as acute as possible, the sun's rays can be recovered, even in the winter.

Solar photovoltaic power is ideal for any size of site

Green electricity

Photovoltaic properties generate renewable energy themselves, providing both self-sufficiency and energy-efficiency. Using renewable energy greatly reduces the carbon footprint, as it reduces the amount of electrical energy purchased from the grid. 

Solar power has a wide range of uses, including powering air conditioning, cooling, lighting and heat pumps, and charging electric cars. Solar panels can also be installed by integrating them into a car roof, into a wall or as a window opener.

Solar photovoltaic power is ideal for any size of site

Solar power can be used effectively, even in Nordic conditions, so it is a profitable investment for sites of all types. Photovoltaic electricity is particularly useful on large sites such as industrial plants, where large power plants can be installed. However, solar panels are also suitable for public buildings, business premises, agriculture or detached houses.

Systems are always dimensioned according to the customer's needs and are designed so that all parts can withstand the life cycle of the entire system. Our service covers design, implementation, remote monitoring and maintenance.

The financial return of solar power 

Careful planning ensures a profitable investment. The self-contained power generation of a well-designed object pays back the initial investment and then starts to generate profit.

We work together with the customer to find solutions suitable for each item. 

Many installation options

Solar panels can be installed either on the ground, on a wall or on a roof. Careful planning and expert installation ensure that a suitable installation method is always chosen for the site and that wall or ceiling structures are not damaged during installation.

In large areas, placing panels on the roof makes it possible to install almost all the power plants almost unobtrusively, so that the panels do not interfere with the landscape.

The product has a long service life and a warranty period of 10 to 12 years. The guarantee for warranty service is up to 30 years. For inverters, the expected service life is approximately 25 years and the warranty is 5–25 years.
