The Ecological Footprint is now an essential part of our everyday life.

HEUTE Maschinenfabrik has also gone green for a few weeks now! In order to reduce our ecological footprint, our headquarters in Solingen has a solar system on the roof.
The system supplies us with electricity as far as possible self-sufficiently and only in winter and in the evenings. If the sun's power cannot provide us with enough energy, we buy green electricity from the public utility company, which also helps to reduce CO2 emissions. As soon as the solar system produces more electricity than we consume, the energy is automatically transferred to two „era:powerbase“ electricity storage tanks (30 kw/h) in the basement, thus enabling us to cover our electricity peaks.
With this investment, we want to do our part for a better environment, so that our ecological footprint will be more sustainable in the future.
