Farm De Jong and Bos are entrepreneurs with a sustainable view of the future. Jan Reinier has a great urge for innovation, but only if they are a answer to challenges to be expected in the future. The other condition is that the choices have a good economic perspective. Partly due to this innovation, they won an Agrafiek Award in 2016 in the Arable Farming category. He was the first farm in Europe to store electricity in a commercial manner. ”
For this project they made use of the SDE subsidy and a “Green Deal” from the province of Drenthe. As a result, they have installed 1,050 solar panels with a total peak capacity of 310,000 kilowatts. Own energy consumption is 75,000 kilowatt hours per year and the rest can therefore be sold. For the sale of renewable energy, he has assumed an efficiency of 80% of his panels. This has to do with the east-west arrangement.
With the purchase of a battery storage system from ATEPS and an adjustment to its power connection to a 400kVa transformer, this became possible. The Reefer comes standard with 19 ″ enclosures with 14 battery modules in each cabinet. The construction is completely modular and can be increased in steps of 35 kWh.
From 10kWh till >5MWh, 10kW to 3MW, fully modular, safe and DNV GL GRIDSTOR certified.
