SOLAR PARKS
FOR MUNICIPALITIES

SOLAR POWER PARK
BENEFITS FOR MUNICIPALITY

Solar parks are large concentrations of solar panel systems, where 100% renewable electricity is produced directly into the national grid, for the use of Finns. Solar electricity can be used to increase energy self-sufficiency and security of supply, as well as reduce carbon dioxide emissions and exposure to fluctuating energy markets.

MUNICIPAL EXAMPLE - SUNSULKAVA

The municipality of Sulkava became the first municipality in Finland to procure the entire municipality's own electricity needs with domestic solar electricity. Emissions from the municipality's own electricity consumption dropped to zero at once. At the same time, Sulkava receives property tax and land rental income.

HOW CAN MUNICIPALITIES PROMOTE A SOLAR PARK PROJECT

The municipality can:

  • contact solar park developers

  • find land suitable for the park

  • rent or sell land for solar parks.

  • make an agreement to buy electricity produced

  • Connects the project developer with electricity consumers (industry)

Land areas suitable for solar parks are:

  • Decommissioned factory areas

  • Decommissioned peat bogs

  • Decommissioned mining areas

  • Poorly growing forest areas

  • Ready flat land areas

  • Wastelands

It is advantageous for the project if there is:

  • Power station (max 5 km)

  • Power line (immediately nearby)

  • Large electricity consumer nearby (e.g. industrial operator)
