Moto-Pfohe is implementing a major project to reduce its carbon footprint taking the lead in the automotive sector in Bulgaria
A photovoltaic installation was built on the territory of the Moto-Pfohe complex in the capital's residential area Lyulin. It will save over 3050 tons of carbon emissions for the entire operational life of the system.
It is expected that it can fully cover the electricity needs of the largest automotive complex in Bulgaria, generating about 210 mWh / year. In this way, the company's customers will receive the usual high quality of service, combined with the generation of zero or minimum carbon emissions.
With the completion of this project, Moto-Pfohe became the first car company in Bulgaria to invest in renewable energy sources on a similar scale and significantly reduce its carbon footprint.
The generated electricity will also supply the charging stations on the territory of the complex. In 2022, Moto-Pfohe will add a new 50-kilowatt charging station for electric cars to the existing station. This year Ford will present on the market in Bulgaria two electric cars – Mustang Mach-E and all-electric Ford Transit.
Masuhiro Oyama, Managing Director of Moto-Pfohe Group, said: “Moto-Pfohe is looking for ways to create new value by taking a step forward in taking new challenges beyond existing ones to help solve social and environmental problems through integrating our business. "
For Moto-Pfohe, this investment is a pilot project, and the plan is to expand it in other car complexes across the country from 2023 onwards.
Contractor FVC Moto-Pfohe Lyulin is Briabuild - Solar EOOD.
Moto-Pfohe has been focused for decades on striving and its role to be a good member of Bulgarian society. Since 1997, the Moto-Pfohe Donation Program for the Preservation of Natural and Cultural Heritage has existed and is maintained, which is a corporate contribution to sustainable development and proof of the company's social responsibility.
In addition, back in 2009, the Moto-Pfohe group, perhaps the first in the industry, introduced electronic invoices for its customers. Spare parts for cars in the company's portfolio are available in bags made of biodegradable material Degralen-L. Moto-Pfohe is constantly investing in the digitalization of its operations.
