MANN Naturenergie GmbH was able to realize over 25 exciting projects this year with around 50,000 euros in funding. A complete success for the expansion of renewables. The projects were funded with money from the green electricity certification of the "MANN Cent" tariff. This green electricity tariff from MANN Naturenergie GmbH bears the Green Electricity Label.
Properly soak up the sun
The effects of climate change are also becoming increasingly noticeable in Germany. That means more sun, more heat. Many families want to take advantage of this and clad their roofs with solar modules to produce their own electricity.
This was also the case for the Balzer family, for example. "We installed our photovoltaic system (10.4 kWp) in 2012 with the idea of using the energy provided by the sun as much as possible for our energy needs," explains the family. This year, they went one step further and had a storage tank built into their house. Another family from the Westerwald region decided to purchase a PV system including storage - another step towards a future that is 100 % from renewable energies.
Call or fill up with electricity?
Daaden is home to what is probably Germany's first electric phone booth. The disused telephone booth was converted into a power cell in 2019, where you can charge your electric vehicle using the latest technology. Quite simply with the cell phone or the tablet, the charging can be started and stopped via an app. The power consumed can also be viewed - tradition and modernity have been fused into one here by creative minds.
...Doing so much together to champion climate protection. "We are pleased to work together with the Green Electricity Label and our customers to advance the energy transition step by step. By promoting the homeowner projects, we can not only bring joy to families, but also do something good for the environment," emphasizes Marco Lenz from MANN Naturenergie GmbH.
The Grüner Strom-Label supports the nature-friendly expansion of renewable energies by obliging suppliers of certified green electricity products to invest a fixed amount per kilowatt hour consumed in energy transition projects. In total, more than 1,350 energy transition projects have already been realized and co-financed. These can include wind farms, tenant electricity projects, and electromobility concepts. But they also include programs for private customers to promote an ecological energy supply in their own homes.
