“My goal is complete autonomy. “HE HAS Saint-Vincent-sur-Graonon the roofs of the company Dreamersspecializing in wood framing and framing, Thierry Jarrion listens to him photovoltaic panels.

684 m2 covered with silicone. A famous semiconductor that converts photons into electricity. An investment of €326,000 that can generate 195 kWp today. Enough to cover the electricity consumption of a company of around forty employees for one year.

So far, only the last installation, installed in 2021 on the storage building, is used for own consumption. The current produced by two additional surfaces installed in 2011 and 2014 is sold EDF. With 20-year contracts and purchase prices of 60 cents and 16 cents per kWh.

“It was madness, especially in 2011. The purchase price was subsidized by the state. It lasted two years, then they said stop,” recalls Thierry Jarrion. Something that makes him laugh when he sees the redemption price being charged at the moment: six cents without tax.

“I always knew it would go up”

After his contracts expire, Thierry Jarrion intends to regain control of the electricity generated in his buildings. He didn’t wait for skyrocketing prices to get off the grid.

I always knew it would go up. In France, thanks to nuclear power, we are used to cheap energy. But the power plants will have to be reconstructed. And that costs something.

The Snoci company covered its roofs with more than 600 m2 of photovoltaic panels.  It plans to increase the area by 30%.

To equip himself, he contacted Thierry Jarrion Willy Roblin. An old acquaintance of the family he founded A kilowatt more in We are not. “Without Willy, I would never have dropped €200,000 in the first panels in 2011. »

Working in renewable energy for fifteen years in France and Africa, Neymisien developed his method. “I always start by evaluating the client’s energy expenditure. After that, I’ll put together a savings plan. If necessary, the expert will recommend photovoltaics, solar water heaters or methanation.

“The front of the train has already passed”

Willy Roblin opted for photovoltaics in the case of Snoci.

We are still waiting for all EDF and Enedis invoices to be returned, but we already know that we will achieve savings of between 15 and 20%.

Thierry Jarrion, convinced of these panels, which can produce for 40 years with a 25-year guarantee, wants to go further. “I plan to plug the holes and increase the surface area of ​​the panels by 30%. »

Willy Roblin is convinced of this.

Now is the time to invest. Not when the price of energy doubles or triples. The head of the train has already passed. We are in the wagons. Soon it will be late.
