The project in Ilfov County involves the turnkey delivery of a photovoltaic system consisting of over 1,008 photovoltaic panels located on a canopy-type metal structure, specially designed for the parking lot of the Mega Image warehouse, as well as the construction of the related electricity infrastructure.
In Sibiu, Enel X Romania will implement a photovoltaic system that involves the installation of 260 photovoltaic panels on the roof of the Mega Image shop.
Bucharest, January 21th, 2021 - Enel X Romania, part of Enel X, the advanced energy services division of the Enel Group, implements two projects to develop photovoltaic systems for the retailer Mega Image in Popești Leordeni and Sibiu, with an installed capacity of over 500 kWp.
The project in Ilfov County involves the turnkey delivery of a photovoltaic system consisting of over 1,008 photovoltaic panels located on a canopy-type metal structure, specially designed for the parking lot of the Mega Image warehouse, as well as the construction of the related electricity infrastructure.

"We bring our customers energy efficiency solutions that allow companies to generate electricity locally and independently, and to increase energy flexibility and profitability, by reducing electricity costs. Also, the projects developed by Enel X Romania lead to the reduction in the environmental impact, by cutting down the carbon footprint. We are glad that Mega Image has chosen clean energy, from renewable sources, both to reduce costs and due to its sustainability," said Mirel Jarnea, Head of B2B Enel X Romania.
The system installed on the roof of the Mega Image warehouse in Popești Leordeni ensures an annual electricity production of over 527 MWh, reducing the carbon dioxide emissions by 246 tons/year. The projects developed together with Enel X bring the Mega Image retailer annual electricity savings estimated at over 65,000 euros.
The project supports the sustainability strategy through which Mega Image is involved and pays special attention to the impact that the activities carried out have on the environment. Stemming from the desire to offer concrete solutions that can help communities benefit from a clean and safe environment, Mega Image uses certified green energy for almost all stores in Bucharest and Ilfov County.
The equipment and technologies used by Enel X in the project have a high performance and reliability and come from well-known suppliers in the global photovoltaic systems market.
