Renewable Energy for the Barbera Coffee Company

Caffè Barbera, the Neapolitan roasting company founded in 1870, has relied on SolarSicily to increase its sustainable contribution & embrace a “ Green ” production for all its products.

The installation of the new photovoltaic system has been placed on the roof of the factory located close to Naples, Italy. An important step in the direction of sustainability for a company already ISO 9001 certified.

The photovoltaic system chosen by Caffè Barbera consists of 180 panels (450W) from the LONGI brand, 107 optimizers, 2 hybrid inverters (7 + 7 kWh) and a SolarEdge inverter (66.6 kWh). This renewable energy plant provides a production of 125,200 kWh (125.2 MWh) of renewable energy per year, the equivalent of 32.05 t. C02 – or 1,472 trees planted. In addition, the self-consumption of 49% (61.5 MWh) is needed for the Barbera’s roasting site, which will allow to export over 63.71 MWh of renewable energy to the grid.

Thanks to this installation, Caffè Barbera is able to satisfy the entire needs of its production which will transform the company to a true Eeco-Sustainable reality, using energy from its own renewable & clean energy source to produce the unmistakable premium blends of the ” Coffee Wizard ”, which are today exported to over 65 countries worldwide.
