Solar park Midden-Groningen

Since the end of 2016, Chint Solar / Astronergy has been involved in the development of this solar park on the edge of Hoogezand-Sappemeer. Landscape design with attention to local biodiversity is of paramount importance to the development. The Midden-Groningen sun park is fitted with input from the local population and fits in well with the existing landscape structures in terms of species use and design. In 2019 the solar park has been developed and it has been connected to the high voltage grid network and is commenced full operations.
