1. Feasibility study (technical and financial)
Our feasibility study clarifies whether a solar carport is a viable investment for your organisation. We offer advice tailored to your unique circumstances. This isn’t a lengthy and complex report you have to wade through, however; we provide a clear summary of the technical options, predicted results, and the costs and returns expected. We weigh up the careful balance between sustainable ambition and viable business case.
2. Define the cooperation
We offer a variety of cooperation and financing options. Are you funding your solar carport, or would you prefer to lease or rent these from Groendus? We offer comprehensive solutions for both scenarios.
3. Permits and subsidies
We specialise in applying for the necessary permits and subsidies. To ensure a viable business case, we make use of national subsidy schemes, such as the Stimulating Sustainable Energy Production (SDE++). We will take care of grant applications for you.
Once you've received the necessary go-aheads, we move on to designing the solar carport. We provide a detailed and reliable development plan and coordinate with the various stakeholders. We have good supplier relationships and take care of procurement for you. Where necessary, we’re happy to issue tenders on your behalf.
5. The build
During construction, we continually monitor and review work completed and make any necessary adjustments. We ensure that the project goes smoothly and arrange independent inspections upon completion. After your plant is connected to the grid, the first rays of sun will be converted into electricity. Bring on the sun!
6. Management & maintenance
Our Asset Management team ensures that the solar carport and charging points perform optimally throughout their lifetime.
Become your own energy supplier
Become your own energy supplier
By generating your own green electricity, you are directly aiding the energy transition. Profit from the energy you generate - charge the cars in your carport and use the rest for your organisation. If you generate more than you need, redistribute any additional electricity to your other sites or sell to local businesses on our Energy Marketplace. All this is possible, without the intervention of a traditional energy supplier.

Solar carport in Bloemendaal aan Zee
Beaches and dunes in this region are protected nature zones. As such, space to generate clean energy is limited. Solar carports proved to be the ideal solution to increase sustainability in this area. Up to 5,000 solar panels are used to generate green electricity for 600 households a year. The carports offer 800 parking spaces with 30 charging points. These days, both beach visitors, and their cars, are refreshed and recharged after a visit to the sun, sea and sand.
