Hybrid solar on a hotel-restaurant in the Paris region-Chatou (FR)
Antonio has been managing the Lusitanos hotel-restaurant for 22 years. Located in Chatou in the Paris region, the 400 m2 hotel built in 1930 employs 5 people all year round and serves about 40 guests. The installation is used to produce hot water for the hotel’s showers, which can accommodate 30 people. Electricity is used in the building.
After major renovations and an expansion, Antonio took care of its energy renovation in 2016: “it’s a south-facing building, we had to take advantage of it.” To be able to produce hot water and electricity in an ecological way, he equipped himself with 15 DualSun hybrid solar panels and 7 photovoltaic solar panels! The icing on the cake: the immediate recharging of his electric vehicles: “since I have been equipped, I have never used my credit card at the gas station”!
It was the installer who advised him to install hybrid solar panels, because they produce twice as much energy per m2 and because they offer an excellent guarantee. The job went well, only 3 days to install the panels on the roof and make all the connections: “He is an installer who loves what he does. Here, no breakdowns, no leaks”.
Antonio says he is satisfied with his installation, not only because it was quick, but also because he didn’t take care of anything: “It was the installer who took care of everything”! Today he recommends DualSun “no breakdowns in 4 years, a service guarantee, a result, until today I have nothing to complain about, I am more than happy!”
A quick visit to the technical room allows us to see the installation: inverters, pipes, 600 L tank, production monitoring terminal … everything is there to check the proper functioning of the installation!
