De Boomgaard - Wijdemeren

Solar farm De Boomgaard - Wijdemeren is located in the municipality of Wijdemeren and is thus part of the Regional Energy Strategy (RES) North Holland South. Following the climate agreement, this RES region aims to produce at least 2.7 TWh of renewable energy by 2030.

The location of the solar farm

The solar farm is located on the former landfill in Wijdemeren, near the village of Ankeveen. With Bussum on the east side, it is adjacent to the N236, next to Restaurant Partycentrum de Molen.

How can residents participate?

At the time of the initial developments towards the realization of the solar farm, Novar organized a walk-in evening for all interested parties and local residents. This evening took place at De Molen in Ankeveen. In an informal and accessible manner, Novar explained the various components of this project and entered into conversation with those present. During these conversations, visitors were able to express their ideas and wishes for the interpretation of the solar park. Where possible, these were included in the further realization of the solar park. 

What added value will the solar farm bring?

In the development of this solar farm, much attention has been given to its landscape incorporation. Here, existing landscape elements and structures are used to completely hide the solar farm from view.
