Make solar the norm on large scale property

Every large roof without solar panels is a missed opportunity. The Solar Coalition is a union of installation companies, suppliers, and energy cooperations, initially founded by the Municipality of Amsterdam and Alliander.

As a result of the work of the Solar Coalition, property owners are better prepared, and therefore incur less costs when investing in solar. We provide tailor made advice for solar solutions that best fit property owners situation, needs and desires. Even if you cannot invest or you do not want to, we have options to realize solar on your roof and make a profit out of any empty large scale roof.

We offer high quality quotes in 4 easy steps:

  1. We inform you about the possibilities and advantages for your portfolio and select options that best fit your needs.
  2. We take care of grant applications for you, an SDE subsidy to make solar financially feasible.
  3. We take a leading role in collecting all the documents that are imperative for suppliers to base an accurate quote on. This includes all Due Diligence aspects such as checks on roof quality, construction carrying weight capacity, grid connection and legal and financial advice.
  4. Now you are well equipped to accurately review quotes and negotiate with various suppliers that are able to build the envisaged solar production facilities on your property, and pick the best option for you.
Currently 5.5 MegaWatts (18.300 solarpanels) have been installed by the Solar Coalition. There is over 80 MegaWatts in the pipeline, whereof 4 will be installed before 2019.
Every empty large scale roof is missing out on profit, a leading role in sustainability and investing in the future. We are looking for large scale property owners who want to know more about solar, have empty roof space and want independent consultancy about solar.
To make solar power the norm on large scale property, we inform owners about the profits of solar and support them in realizing solar panels.
