Sonaca doubles its annual production of renewable electricity


Sonaca and Neopark* have just signed a contract to cover up to 12% of Sonaca's electricity needs, by equipping with photovoltaic panels the roofs of the buildings on the Gosselies's site.

This new installation of 3 MWp will produce around 3 GWh/year of solar energy, equivalent to the annual consumption of almost 900 households.

The installations will be located on the Green building and  productions plants, and should be progressively available from the last quarter of 2024. They will represent the equivalent of 5 hectares of solar panels.

With the existing installations (2MWp) and these future installations, Sonaca confirms its ambitions to decarbonize its production sites and thus contribute to the objective of reducing its emissions by 40% by 2030.

*Neopark: a special partnership between Ceneo, an intercommunal energy financing company based in Hainaut, and Enerdeal, a company specializing in the development of solar projects.
