SUNSULKAVA
SOLAR PARK

SUNSULKAVA SOLAR PARK

In the SunSulkava project, a 5 MWp solar power park was built in Sulkava municipality, which covers the entire Sulkava municipality's own electricity consumption. After the completion of the solar park in the spring of 2023, the municipality of Sulkava became the first municipality in Finland whose electricity is produced from sunlight, and even netter locally in Sulkava. At the same time, Sulkava municipality's electricity usage emissions dropped to zero.

"With the solar power park built in Sulkava, the municipality of Sulkava took a big leap towards its carbon neutrality goals. The cooperation with Solarigo was seamless, and Solarigo's staff shines with strong professionalism and a genuine passion. SunSulkava project has been a great success, and it has been a pleasure to be involved in this it!" - Antti Hulkkonen, Technical Director, Sulkava municipality.

Development

The municipality of Sulkava, in cooperation with Solarigo, identified potential areas for a solar power park from the land owned by the municipality. A suitable area was found near a power station, north of the municipal center.

Solarigo made a proposal icluding 25 year land rent, implementing the park and supplying electricity to the municipality of Sulkava in cooperation with Lumme Energia.

The municipality of Sulkava committed to buy electricity from the park, while Solarigo made the solar park investment. At the same time, the municipality of Sulkava receives land rent and real estate tax income from the area.

Construction

Land transfer work for the park began in the summer of 2022 with leveling the field.

The actual Solar Park was installed in its entirety during the winter of 2022. Despite challenges brought by winter, winter installation suited the project well, as freezing of the soft and moist soil even improved installation conditions.
