In late 2017, HuurDeZon, a developer of solar energy projects for social housing, installed over 7,500 solar panels on the roofs of rented homes owned by housing association Eigen Haard. The solar panels are capable of generating a total of almost 2 MWp.




In 2014, HuurDeZon reached agreement with BNG Bank and the municipality of Amsterdam to finance solar panels on the rooftops of a thousand rented homes owned by housing association Eigen Haard. The project includes the design, installation, management and maintenance as well as the funding of the solar panels.

The project uses the Energy Service Company (ESCO) operation model, which takes the work of both fitting and funding the solar panels out of the housing association's hands. Tenants pay a contribution towards the use of the solar panels that is lower than their current electricity bill.
