Solar Panels? Go To ‘Roof Rent’. Visibly Green

solar panels  go to  roof rent  visibly green | Breaking News

The first roof with solar panels was delivered in the framework of the Solar program of FrieslandCampina at the Elshof dairy farm in Oldetrijne (Friesland, the Netherlands) on Friday, 29 September 2017. This took place in Roelof Joosten, CEO of Royal FrieslandCampina N.V., Sytse Bouwer of GroenLeven, and dozens of guests.

Solar Panels? Friesland Campina

Roelof Joosten said that he was pleased with the subsidy, which will install a total of 416,000 solar panels at 310 dairy farms, where these will annually generate 115 GWh green electricity. This is equal to green electricity for 33,000 households or 20% of the total use of electricity of FrieslandCampina in the Netherlands.

Roelof Joosten: ‘The ambition of FrieslandCampina is to generate sufficient green electricity at the farmyards of our member farmers to cover the use of electricity fully. We will contribute to the reduction objective for the year 2020, as agreed within the dairy sector. The agricultural sector already represents half of the national green energy production. The large-scale installation of solar panels thanks to the ‘roof-rent solution’ can help us reach this objective. With this, the agricultural sector can play an even more important role in the energy transition.’

Henk Kamp, Minister of Economic Affairs, recently granted 200 million euros for solar panels on FrieslandCampina dairy farms' roofs. All this is based on the ‘roof-rent solution’ developed by GroenLeven, in which the dairy farmer receives a payment per panel.

Climate-Neutral Growth

FrieslandCampina is working on several initiatives for an efficient and sustainable dairy chain to achieve climate-neutral growth. By purchasing green certificates, FrieslandCampina stimulates its member dairy farmers to generate sustainable energy, for example, using windmills, manure fermentation, or solar panels. On top of this, FrieslandCampina will pay these members a bonus of 10 euro per ton reduction of the CO2 emission.

Henk Kamp, the Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs, granted over 200 million euro SDE+ subsidy to install solar panels at FrieslandCampina member dairy farms' roofs. This will make it possible to install more than 416,000 solar panels at 310 dairy farms.
 
 

The Roof Rent Solution: GroenLeven

The ‘roof rent solution’ of GroenLeven focuses on dairy farms with a roof surface of over 1,000 m2. GroenLeven installs a solar system on the dairy farm roof and takes care of its connection, monitoring, financing, guarantees, and maintenance. The dairy farmer receives an annual premium of 3 to 4 euros per panel to make available the roof and use green electricity without being forced to invest in solar panels himself. Each year, the dairy farmer is offered the choice to take over the installation and the accompanying SDE subsidy. Apart from using it at the dairy farm, a part of the solar energy will go to FrieslandCampina plants and offices in the Netherlands to meet their electricity demand.

Solar Energy: Visibly ‘Green.’

The generation of green energy using solar panels is a reliable method and basically suitable for all farms. An average dairy farm roof (usually the sheds) offers room for more than enough solar panels to compensate for the farm's full electricity demand. With solar panels, a dairy farmer can visibly contribute to making the chain more sustainable. A total of 1,600 FrieslandCampina dairy farms already have solar panels.

Acceleration Through The Solar Program

With the Solar program, FrieslandCampina accelerates solar panels' installation on its member dairy farms' roofs. This is done by developing interesting proposals for the member dairy farmers and entering into partnerships with experienced parties from the solar energy sector. The interest in the ‘roof-rent solution’ of GroenLeven has succeeded beyond expectations. A second participation round for FrieslandCampina member dairy farms will follow in the autumn of 2017. Hundreds of dairy farmers have already expressed their interest. Apart from the ‘roof rent solution,’ the FrieslandCampina Solar program tries to find solutions for roof surfaces smaller than 1,000 m2. This way, FrieslandCampina, and its member dairy farmers fully cover the electricity demand within the dairy chain by producing green electricity at their own farmyards.
