16-07-2019

To be able to renovate Landgoed Quadenoord (Renkum) a solar Parc will be installed. For this project Landgoed Quadenoord cooperates with the ValleiEnergie cooperative and with Chint Solar. Chint Solar has a lot of experience and knowledge of developing and building solar parts. Everyone from the environment can participate in this sustainable energy project via the Cooperative Valley Energy. Together with Wageningen University, we are working hard on the biodiversity on the plots. The permit application has been submitted.

Solar parc Quadenoord

Landgoed Quadenoord is on the eve of a major renovation. Due to years of financial shortage, maintenance is overdue and monumental hotspots are in danger of disappearing forever. The estate doesn’t want that to happen. The cultural and historical heart of the estate needs a boost. For example, the wish is to renovate and rebuild the watermill with its original farm, to thoroughly renovate the country house and to catch up with forest management. The estate has therefore decided to have two agricultural plots arranged as a solar parc and to use the income for the renovation.

This project is temporary; after 30 years the plots will return to the estate in agricultural use. The plots were carefully selected and kept as small as possible. Specifically, it concerns two plots of a total of 15.7 hectares. The permit application for the project has been submitted to the municipality of Renkum. For this project Landgoed Quadenoord cooperates with the Coöperatie ValleiEnergie and with Chint Solar. Chint Solar has a lot of experience and knowledge of developing and building solar parcs. Everyone from the neighbourhood can participate in this sustainable energy project via the Coöperatie ValleiEnergie. If the permit is available for inspection, the preparation process will follow. The aim is to start the construction of the solar parc in the course of 2020 so that it can supply sustainable energy by the end of 2020.
