Somelos Tecidos located close to Guimarães north of Porto in Portugal, is a family owned group of twelve companies in the textile industry, with clients all over the world in the upper mid market range. Somelos has a huge electricity need and have therefore always had the sourcing of electricity at the right price as their focus. Bright Sunday is currently installing 1.13 MW of solar PV at their private industrial park of 200,000 square meters.
-We are pleased to start this partnership together with Bright Sunday. Not only is this an important step in our green transition, but making the production more sustainable is the most important issue nowadays for our clients, says Paulo and Antonio Melo, CEOs of the Somelos Group.
The Bright Sunday team is extremely happy and proud to be selected as Somelos’ long term partner as we know they have a deep understanding of their own electricity needs and the energy market as a whole. They are not only one of the leading Portuguese textile manufacturers, they are also as focused on the long term as we are. We are already exploring a future expansion of the 1.13 MW to a total of over 3 MW, in order to further meet their electricity needs.
