Solar park Oppenhuizen officially opened
On Wednesday 18 May, solar park Oppenhuizen (Friesland, the Netherlands) was officially opened. On this successful and sunny afternoon, alderman Faber, an employee of the municipality, a delegation of the village community and from the energy cooperation were given a tour of the solar park. They learned about the realization, construction, technology, integration into the landscape and the installed PowerGo fast charging stations, where you can charge with solar energy. The solar park was officially opened by alderman Faber; he charged his car with the first ‘solar kilowatt hours’.
Solar park Oppenhuizen was developed by and owned by PowerField. In order to allow a part of the revenues to end up in the area, it was agreed that PowerField would donate an annual amount to the village community Doarpsbelang Toppenhuzen – Twellingea. Instead, PowerField has decided to donate €45,000 all at once, at the start of the exploitation term. Chairman Luuk Westert received the check and indicated that the amount will be used for sustainability initiatives. This benefits the villages of Oppenhuizen and Uitwellingerga. Project manager Jeffrey Janssen handed over the check on behalf of PowerField, and wished Doarpsbelang the best of luck with the sustainability initiatives!
