Scheuten Solar has recently completed a project comprising of the design, delivery and installation of a solar power system for the new sustainable Lidl branch in Weert, the Netherlands.

The supermarket was officially opened on Wednesday 28 November. The solar panels provide power to all cooling and freezing installations in the branch. The new Lidl store has been built according to extensive durable guidelines and is characterized by various environmental and energy saving elements.

The 290 solar panels installed by Scheuten Solar produce the equivalent amount of energy required to power over 20 households. The solar panels are installed on the flat roof of Lidl Weert using a lightweight aluminium substructure. Scheuten Solar specifically designed the substructure based on the requirements of the roof of Lidl Weert, including the building and electrical technical design. This enables the realization of an optimal and stable PV-system.

The PV-system strongly contributes to the sustainable character of Lidl. Besides the installation of solar panels, the supermarket has been fitted with energy-saving lighting. The built-in heat pump system regulates the entire climate of the building.

Perry Verberne, Chief Commercial Officer at Scheuten Solar: "Scheuten Solar actively contributes to the use of renewable energy in the Netherlands and Europe. For that, we deliver solutions that guarantee high yield investments in solar energy. I consider the partnership with a renowned company like Lidl as very valuable; it is nice to see that our solar panels contribute to their sustainable vision."
