Together with Opgewekt Houten, Coöperatie Duurzaam Eiland and BHM Solar, Chint Solar has developed Stroomveld De Knoest in the municipality of Houten.

Stroomveld De Knoest is a unique project that combines generating green energy with nature, recreation, cultural history and education.

The Dutch waterline is central to the design. There will be new walking routes and a watchtower inspired by the old Knoester watermill. The restoration of the characteristic land division and long views complete the picture. The design was created in close consultation with the local community.

The Municipality of Houten aims to be energy-neutral by 2040. In 2025, 20% of the energy required must be generated sustainably. Stroomveld De Knoest can play an important role in achieving this goal. The solar park will provide sustainable energy to 8,600 households.
