Fuelsave

Photovoltaics and diesel – the power of two.

The FuelSave is your one-stop solution for PV-Diesel hybrid power plants by two of the leading providers in their field of business: PRETTL group in diesel generator systems and KACO new energy in PV technology.

Benefits

  • Includes all necessary components – control unit, solar PV inverters, diesel generator, PV mounting system
  • On request, also comes with logistics, installation and commissioning services
  • Integrates PV systems of substantial size and power
  • Reduces fuel consumption and genset maintenance costs
  • Offers preconfigured packages ready for delivery
  • Can be adapted to individual needs
  • Allows for retrofitting of existing diesel generator systems
  • Extends operating time of gensets due to lower fuel consumption
  • Lowers emissions of CO2 and other air pollutants
