ABB claims to have opened a factory that generates all of its energy needs via solar power


In May 2019, Zurich-headquartered ABB unveiled what it described as a CO2-neutral factory in the town of Luedenscheid, Germany. The site employs around 800 people to manufacture electrical equipment such as power sockets and switchers.

The facility, which is operated by ABB subsidiary Busch-Jaeger, is supported by a huge solar photovoltaic system that has been installed over its car park. According to ABB, it can produce 1100 megawatt-hours of power each year, enough to meet the annual needs of 340 homes.
