Belgian region of Flanders has installed what is the largest rooftop solar installation since 2013. Flemish Minister for Energy Bart Tommelein inaugurated the 2.2 MW system that has come up on the roof of Nike Distribution Center in Ham, Tessenderlo.

This is the largest rooftop solar power installation since the country revised its green certificate scheme in 2013. Back in 2013, the country had revised its green certificate scheme for renewables.

The project uses a total of 8,136 solar panels and will supply 15% of the Nike center’s energy consumption.

“Large companies are ideally suited to make large solar installations on their roofs. Let us hope that this example will inspire other businesses,” said Flemish Minister of Energy Bart Tommelein at the inauguration of the project.
