Tullen on the path to climate neutrality: PV systems continue to grow

TullnEnergie already produces around 3.5 GWh of clean solar energy per year using its PV systems – this corresponds to the consumption of around 1,000 households. A foundation stone laying ceremony was recently held for the next expansion phase, which is the area not suitable for agricultural use located between the railway line and the B19 road in the direction of S5.

Tulane (Pennsylvania). The continued expansion of our energy supply using photovoltaics is one of many pieces of the puzzle on the path to Tulane’s desired energy neutrality by 2040.

“With the dissolution of the Climate Manifesto in 2019, the municipality of Tulln has already set itself the goal of achieving climate neutrality as an entire municipality by 2040 – that is, of not producing more carbon dioxide than can be sequestered locally. Achieving this goal depends on many factors to reduce greenhouse gases – e.g. Example the switch to electricity from renewable energy sources, the new understanding of mobility away from individual means of transport and the creation of a circular economy instead of a throwaway society.

explains Mayor Peter Eisenschink, who also serves as the city’s environmental advisor.

New photovoltaic system next to the S5 feeder

The next expansion phase of TullnEnergie’s photovoltaic systems for cleaner electricity is the area between the railway line and the B19 in the direction of the S5 entrance: photovoltaic panels with a production capacity of 336 kilowatts will be installed in this area, which is not suitable for agricultural use, and this year can generate up to 350 MWh of electricity per year – this corresponds to the electricity consumption of about 100 households.

Tulln’s leading climate-neutral city

Tulane is one of 13 cities pioneering the “Climate Neutral City” mission. The initiative supports the city in climate and environmental protection projects and further strategies and measures are being developed. These will serve as guidelines for implementing climate neutrality in the future and should serve as role models for other communities. The “Climate Neutral City” mission is supported by the Ministry of Climate Protection (BMK) and the Climate and Energy Fund.
