From April 2020 the SMILE performance measurements started pouring in. Over a period of seven months, which included the busy summer period, the photovoltaic panels supplied 47% of the energy demand in the Ballen marina
Today in Samsø when the photovoltaic panels produce excess energy, it is stored in our XOLTA battery system from our partner Lithium Balance in order to be released again during the night when there is no solar energy available.
Did you know that so far this activity has saved the Ballen marina up to €6.800 on energy expenditures from the public electricity grid?
The diagram below shows the energy balance of the Ballen marina between April 1st and November 1st 2020: a real success.
