The Markelo solar park was realized on the site of a former asylum seekers’ center in the hamlet of Herike-Elsen in the municipality of Hof van Twente, which had not been used since 2012. The park’s surface area covers almost 5 hectares. The 6.5 MWp solar park provides green energy to approximately 2,000 households.
The park also offers plenty of opportunities for nature. Special nesting baskets have been installed for birds of prey, and the raised fencing allows small wildlife to pass without any problems.
Chint Solar has successfully completed solar parks in Leek, Kampen and Markelo. The three solar parks provide a total of 54 MWp and supply sustainable energy to more than 15,000 households.
