Once commissioned, the solar parks could produce 300 GWh of electricity p.a. corresponding to the electricity use of 72,000 households in central and southern Sweden, e.g. in areas with electricity supply shortage. The goal to develop and build solar parks of up to 500 MW together with Solkompaniet remains.
Since entering into the framework agreement in the spring of 2022, Niam has secured 5 large scale solar projects with a combined potential of up to approx. 300 MW. The portfolio is well diversified both geographically and by land classification. All projects are situated in the southern part of Sweden with excellent conditions for solar power including good access to grid infrastructure. The projects are located in price area 3 and 4 in the counties of Skåne, Östergötland, Västergötland and Kronoberg. The projects are expected to reach ready-to-build during 2024 and 2025 with commissioning of the first project expected around the turn of the year 2026/27.
