Landscaping an area of 19 hectares for renewable energy and landscaping. The Haarlemmermeer City Council drew two solar park initiatives by TPSolar as projects in 2022: Hoofdweg and Vijfhuizerweg.

Municipality of Haarlemmermeer
The municipality of Haarlemmermeer wants to be energy neutral by 2050. To achieve this, the municipality is committed to energy conservation and solar panels on roofs, as well as large-scale sustainable energy projects, such as solar parks. The municipality has established a ‘Solar Square’ as a search area for solar parks around Schiphol. In this search area, TPSolar has made a plan for Zonnepark Vijfhuizerweg.
Resident participation consists of two parts: plan participation and financial participation.
In plan participation, you can think along about the plans, design, layout, management and maintenance of the solar park. Local residents are actively involved in this process through information on the website and social media, information meetings and kitchen table discussions. In 2022 local residents contributed to the design and layout of Zonnepark Vijfhuizerweg.
Financial participation is co-investing and/or experiencing the benefit of the proceeds of a solar farm. We aim for 50% local ownership in all our projects. In consultation with local residents, financial participation may not be the ideal outcome. After receiving the environmental permit, we will enter into consultation with local residents about profiting from the green power of the Hoofdweg solar park.
