Did you know that the roof of our Cactus Redange store has 2,400 solar panels which produce enough electricity annually to supply 120 family homes?

Driven by the same determination to commit to sustainable action for the environment, Cactus and Enovos formed a partnership and set up a joint company to build and operate photovoltaic installations. Encasol now manages three systems which have been installed on Cactus supermarket roofs. In all, 7,416 panels have been installed: 2,400 in Redange, 1,584 in Ingeldorf and 3,432 in Bascharage.

With total power of 1,631 kW, these three installations produce over 1,500,000 kWh each year, which is equivalent to the total annual consumption of some 370 Luxembourg households. Customers can get real-time information from digital panels located in the malls of these three stores about the solar energy produced. At the same time, Enovos and Cactus have also installed charging stations on many car parks that electric car owners can use.

Cactus and Enovos – a long-term partnership working to protect the environment.
