90 percent reduction on CO2 emissions and operating expenses

E-site is a revolutionary and “green” off-grid base station site solution powered mainly by renewable energy sources (sun and wind) and controlled by an intelligent control system, enabling massive savings in operating expenses and maintenance visits. Results show a more than 90% savings in fuel and a more than 80% savings in operating expenses, and the reduction of the need for maintenance visits to only one per year.

CO2 emissions from the base station, normally around 50 tonnes per station per year, are cut by more than 90%. E-site is ideal for off-grid base stations in emerging markets.
