As a well-known saying goes, “we don’t inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”
This proverb also guides Jelovica in its attitude towards the environment! And if it seemed a while ago that Earth’s resources are inexhaustible, it is now clear that’s not the case. As companies, we need to find a way to grow while at the same time preserve the environment.
In line with our environmental awareness, we are most likely the only company in Europe that draws all energy needs for manufacture and heating from our own hydroelectric power station, solar panels fitted on the roof of the company and wood biomass as the by-product of the manufacture process.
We also want to hand down our eco-friendly way of life and work to our customers, to whom we present all the advantages of houses which do not burden the environment, but are neutral or even generate surplus energy.
Renewed energy sources
TAKING GOOD CARE OF HEALTH, NATURE AND FUTURE GENERATIONS – SINCE 1980
At Jelovica, we aspire to produce most of the energy for manufacturing requirements from renewable sources:
SOLAR PANELS – 82 %
of the total energy is produced by the sun
HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATION – 18 %
of the total energy is produced by our own hydroelectric power station
BOILER ROOM (WASTE WOOD) – 100 %
of the total energy used in heating is produced exclusively from our own biomass
Controlled manufacture on the basis of natural materials
Wood is without a doubt the most ecological building material. In addition to providing a pleasant and healthy living environment, it is also distinguished by excellent seismic and fire safety. If you wish to build a warm, energy-saving and healthy home for yourself and your family, opt for a Jelovica wooden house.
In comparison with the manufacture of products from materials such as for example aluminium, plastic, steel or concrete, less energy is needed for the manufacture of wood products. One cubic metre of wood products reduces CO2 emissions by two tons after final calculations.
Wood is also the best heat insulator among all building materials. An interesting little fact: 2.5cm thick wood panelling after thermal insulation is equals to an 11.4cm thick brick.
