Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for a broad array of industries and applications, has installed one of the largest solar power systems in Switzerland. The extensive green energy initiative, which costs more than 2 million Swiss Francs ($2.2 million), will make Hoffmann Neopac fully electricity sustainable at each of its two manufacturing sites in its home country.
Comprising a total of 12,000 square meters, the ambitious photovoltaic system will have the ability to generate as much as 2,616 kilowatts peak (kWp.
