Photovoltaic system for Ducati Niederrhein

Motorcycles will have less CO2 emissions than electric vehicles during their first year
(PresseBox) (Duisburg, ) Soventix GmbH will build a 100 kWp photovoltaic system on the roof of the Ducati branch office Niederrhein in Geldern within the next weeks. The electricity generated from this solar power system will save approximately 50 tons of CO2 emissions every year.

Ulrich Ziehm, owner of the motorcycle office would like to increase the environmental consciousness of his customers through this action. "More and more customers worry, that it is not appropriate any more to enjoy a hobby connected with high CO2 emissions. In the future, each of our customers will be CO2 neutral for their first 5,000 kilometers - averaging out the entire first year - and therefore improve his or her personal CO2 consumption."

The CO2 reduction through the photovoltaic system equals approximately 400,000 kilometers driven on a Ducati motorcycle. A display in the retail area of the Ducati Niederrhein store will show the produced electricity of the photovoltaic system translated into motorcycle kilometers. "Environmental consciousness and a resource consuming hobbyhardly ever agree. Therefore we are glad, that we can positively contribute to this challenge with our technology. Perhaps the motorcyclists s will think about how to sustain the environmental awareness in the future", says Thorsten Preugschas, CEO of Soventix.

Soventix aims to further develop this model also with other vehicle manufacturers, possible also within the car industry.
