Construction phase starts in Dordrecht
On Monday, October 1, TPSolar started to place 22,000 solar panels at the landfill of Transberg in Dordrecht. The solar park is located next to the river Dordtsche Kil, field size is 10 hectares and panels with 72 solar cells are used. The solar park in the province South Holland will be completed before the end of 2018 and it will generate 7.5 MW. The amount of green energy which is generated is comparable to the average energy consumption of 2,100 households.
Hot and woolly start of ‘Solar Park Hoogveld Uden’
On Wednesday July 4, the team of TPSolar opened the largest solar park in the province Noord-Brabant, it is located next to Volkel military airport. René Hendriks and Erik Wieffer, both owners of TPSolar officially opened the solar park together with alderman of the municipality of Uden, Franko van Lankvelt, and shepherd Dirk Geenen. The solar park is called ‘Solar Park Hoogveld Uden’. It has a double function: firstly, it generates sustainable energy from the sun, and secondly, the remaining land covered with grass or other herbage is grazed by 150 sheep. Furthermore, the solar park consists of 43,000 solar panels on 12.4 hectares of land. Thanks to the cooperation with Powerpeers, the Nuon-Vattenfall subsidiary, TPSolar provides 3,500 households with green electricity in the region of Uden. Finally, at the opening party, the artist Genoveef Lukassen from Uden unveiled a small-scale model of the artwork that will be placed next to the solar park at the roundabout. In a number of weeks, TPSolar will start with the second solar park on a former landfill in Dordrecht. Source: Brabants Dagblad.

Nuon-Vattenfall purchases solar energy from the solar park Uden
On Monday February 19, the energy company Nuon as an integral part of Vattenfall has signed agreements with 3 solar parks in the Netherlands for the purchase of green energy via so-called Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). The solar park in Uden is one of them.
Vattenfall has the ambition to build a portfolio of PPAs. The Dutch Vattenfall subsidiary Powerpeers is involved in the solar park in Uden. The park generates solar energy which can be shared via the Powerpeers platform, after that the community of Uden can use the generated green energy. This project was realized by TPSolar-Konzept in close collaboration with the municipality of Uden. Approximately 43,000 solar PV are installed with a total capacity of 12-Megawatt peak (MWp).
