SOLAR POWER

AND STRATEGY

We have been satisfied with Solarigo and the service works well for us. It is especially good when we see for ourselves how solar power plants produce clean electricity.

SOLAR POWER PLANTS AS PART OF BUSINESS STRATEGY

Reka Kaapeli is committed to the UN sustainable development goals and to making responsible solutions in business. Local solar electricity production at the Keuruu and Riihimäki factories came up for consideration along with other sustainable development activities, and solar power plants have become part of Reka's responsibility activities. Solar power plants were installed on the walls of Reka's production facilities in 2020.

"The construction of the solar power plants went smoothly alongside our own production activities, no problem. We feel that the implementation of the solar power plants has also been a good step for us," sums up Reka Kaapel's production manager Anne Tillgren.

Reka's solar power plants are wall-mounted, so they are very visible from the outside, and they have attracted a lot of positive comments both within the company and from external stakeholders.

Anne Tillgren has been satisfied with Solarigo, as proof of which Reka has considered expanding the current power plants as part of ongoing responsibility work.

Reka Kaapeli's sustainability goals made the company consider solar electricity as part of other green transition work. At the production plants in Riihimäki and Keuruu, suitable spaces for the local production of solar power were found on the walls of the factories. In the competition, Reka chose Solarigo with the best overall solution, taking into account costs, service and domesticity. At the same time, Reka's other electricity procurement was renewed to Lumme Energia's CO2-free electricity.
