Largest solar park Netherlands shot down
The construction of the largest Dutch solar park in Gennep has been halted for now. The energy park of 19 MW with 75,000 solar panels on an area of 28 hectares was crippled by decisions in The Hague, announced the initiators. The limitations in the energy agreement are such that the plan is not feasible. The energy agreement only allows benefits for local residents of the energy park. As a result, the park is no longer profitable, according to a statement of the initiators.
Investors stay away because tax measures may be reversed annually. With little to no certainty, banks will not invest, according to the foundation, commissioned by the city council to do a feasibility study.
