Middelkerke Mill of Groenhage

Goal

Deploy solar energy on a historical site.

 

Description

In Leffinge, a small village of Middelkerke, the municipality wants to install solar installations and electricity storage capacity on the site of a heritage mill, build in 1871 and included in the list of architectural heritage since 2005. The PV panels will be installed on the roof of a heritage building, the barn of a heritage mill.

The electricity that is ‘captured’ is to be used onsite (in the buildings) and also for charging points for bikes and cars. It is also investigating whether the electricity can be used for public lighting in the surrounding area of the quarter where the mill is situated.
