The Manifattura Mara facility is powered from alternative energy generated by a 37 kWp photovoltaic field which consists of 200 Sharp monocrystalline silicon solar panels, each rated at 185 Wp.
This photovoltaic system was activated in 2007 under the '1° Conto Energia' scheme (1st Italian feed-in tariff), a pioneering programme in the renewable energy sector. It provides 50% of the company's energy needs with an approximate average annual production of 40,000 kWh.
