General information
solarcomplex AG, as a citizen-owned company, has set itself the goal of converting the regional energy supply largely to renewable energies by 2030. Renewable heating networks in 18 communities, over 50 MW of solar power plants, wind turbines and other renewable energy plants have been realized. Solarcomplex and Schmid AG energy solutions have been working together for many years and have already realized several joint projects. In the transitional period and in winter, two Schmid wood chipboiler plants feed the grid. Only biomass from regional forests is used as fuel . The regenerative local heat replaces about 1 million liters of heating oil per year. This corresponds to a CO2 saving of 2,400 tons/year.
