In total, 2,900 high-quality solar modules will be installed on the roof of The Hague’s soccer stadium.

The solar system will become one of the largest building-based photovoltaic (PV) projects in the Netherlands. It will provide the equivalent electricity required by around 200 typical homes, Kyocera said in a statement.

The solar project will allow carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to be reduced by up to 272 tons a year. It will make a valuable contribution to The Hague’s plans to become carbon neutral by 2040.

The stadium is the home of the first-division Dutch soccer team ADO Den Haag and has a capacity of 15,000. In addition to soccer, the stadium is used for field hockey games.

Construction work is set to take place this summer, immediately following the Hockey World Cup, which will use the stadium as a venue.
