Officially launched, solar power plant atop Kyocera Stadion is the second largest in the Netherlands, only trailing behind Amsterdam ArenA.
Solar battery installation ended at Kyocera Stadion in Hague. It’s a rare case of naming rights owner manufacturing the photovoltaic panels, but this project is a showcase and debut for Kyocera on the Dutch photovoltaic energy market.
Each of the four grandstands has its own batch of solar batteries installed, largest one of course atop the main grandstand. Altogether there are 2,900 panels mounted, which in domestic scale puts Kyocera Stadion only behind much larger Amsterdam ArenA (4,200). Internationally it’s not as impressive (8,444 in Kaohsiung), but still a large number for a stadium of under 20,000 seats.
The installation in Hague should generate 600,000 kWh annually, covering 50% of ADO Den Haag’s use or equivalent of 200 households. Investment in photovoltaics is part of the effort to make Hague a carbon-neutral city by 2040.
