In order to offer this free service for customers, Schmitz supermarket chain installed a mini solar power plant
In order to deliver convenience allied to modernity, Schmitz supermarket chain innovates in the sector by offering chargers for electric cars in their Santa Cruz do Sul store, in Southern Brazil. Operating in the supermarket sector for only four months, the company already counts on the differential of having the electric charger, the second one working in the city, which is located in the store’s parking lot.
The chain offers the service at no cost, and the customer can charge the vehicle while they shop for groceries. As the novelty tends to create additional energy costs, the company invested on a micro solar power plant, which should be operating next November. With the micro power plant, Schmitz supermarkets expects to save up to R$ 4,700 a month in relation to the company’s current energy costs.
