Sustainable and pesticide-free environment
Senior boss Johann Janker had the idea in the 1990s to supply the one farm with energy from its own wind turbine.
Energy from our own wind power
With an output of 250 kW, a tower height of 40 m and a rotor diameter of 33 m, the then largest and only fifth wind turbine in Austria was erected in Kilb. With this, we generate 600,000 kW/h of green electricity per year This makes ECOWIND Handels-& Wartungs-GmbH one of the pioneers of wind power in Austria.
Energy from our own photovoltaics
The site in Kilb has 5 kW of photovoltaics fixed on the roof and over 5 kW trackersystem tracked.
With the end of 2019, a 160 kWp photovoltaic free-standing system was built. To optimize self-consumption, this will be supplemented by a power to heat system in 2020.
We will thus achieve a self-consumption of 95%.
Heat from our own miscanthus heating
At the company’s site in Kilb, 12 hectares of miscanthus are cultivated in organic farming, which is burned in a 300 kW boiler to generate energy. In this way, 80,000 liters of heating oil are saved, which corresponds to 248,800 kg of CO².
On average, we generate 710,000 kWh with wind and sun.
The core task of the energy management is to control the flows of energy. It focuses on the following goals:
