Is your land a good match for a solar park?

Unusable land

Sweden has a lot of land currently unsuitable for use in forestry or agriculture which could instead contribute towards sustainable electricity production.

  • Low productivity
  • Lack of ecological or agricultural value
  • Damaged or degraded land

Large areas

Large, uninterrupted plots are best suited for the development of solar parks.

  • Minimum 20 hectares
  • Relatively flat topography
  • Secluded or already exploited location

Proximity to energy infrastructure

The ability to connect to the grid is a requirement for all types of power production.

  • Proximity to grid station
  • Available grid capacity
  • The middle of Sweden

Solar irradiation

The amount of sunlight available determines how much electricity can be produced by solar parks. This, in turn, is affected by geographical location, surrounding vegetation and buildings, and local weather conditions.

  • High solar irradiation
  • Low level of shade from surrounding area

Why lease your land to Sunna?

By leasing your land to Sunna, you can be sure that you’re making a smart investment. For yourself as well as for the environment. As a landowner, you will receive a long-term and secure income whilst also contributing to the production of renewable electricity and the promotion of biodiversity. 

At Sunna we want to be your secure partner throughout the whole process. From development and construction of the solar park to the day the solar cells have reached the end of their technical lifespan. We are backed by established capital partners from across the Nordics, giving us financial stability and long-term sustainability within the Swedish energy market.


A secure investment which benefits biodiversity

By building our solar parks on locations with low ecological value, we do not compromise existing agriculture, animals or nature.

Easy to plan and build

Our solar parks are easy to plan, and the technology contains no moving parts resulting in fewer potential complications over time.

Reversible installation

The construction of a solar park leaves little lasting impact on its location. The installation process is almost entirely reversible and the land can be restored to its original state when the park has reached the end of its life expectancy. In addition, large parts of the construction can be reused and the modules recycled.

Green electricity from the sun

Locally produced solar power creates resilience for local communities. This provides access to renewable electricity, sets the conditions for low local energy prices and enables more connectivity to the grid. A solar park also creates opportunities for new businesses and the expansion of existing commercial developments.

How it works

Our projects

Why biodiversity?

Biodiversity entails supporting landscapes that can support several different species and large genetic varieties. It’s vital we protect biodiversity because of its central role in ensuring the survival of systems that support both nature and human life. Healthy biodiversity is crucial, for example, in underpinning the supply of clean water, air and the pollination of our crops for food production.

Scientists are also in agreement that the current pressure on biodiversity is very concerning. In the spring of 2018, the UN-established Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) published reports which assessed the loss of global ecological health to be as great a threat to the world as climate change. 

We must do better at protecting our biodiversity. To ensure the continued development of stable ecosystems, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced and more of our landscape rewilded and given back to nature. 

Electricity generated by solar power is a crucial building block in the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and will play a significant role in the electrification of the future. Solar parks built on existing low value land also ensure that greenfield sites remain untouched, and existing biodiversity supported and allowed to flourish.

Frequently asked questions by landowners

As a landowner solar power represents both a wise investment and also dependable, long-term income for at least 30 years. Income is generated through rent, at either a fixed amount, variable based on the park’s electricity production, or a combination of both. Your investment in a solar park also increases the amount of renewable electricity available in the Nordic market and strengthens the biodiversity in Sweden. 

The land on which the solar park is built will undergo some temporary changes during its construction. Vegetation and trees will be removed (the trees will, however, keep their roots). Temporary gravel roads will be created for construction traffic and soil excavated for the placement of items such as cable shafts. 

We try our utmost to avoid changing or damaging soil during construction. Solar panel racks are piled into the ground, leaving minimal imprint on the soil’s properties. 

Because the land on which a solar park is built on is left almost entirely untouched, a fully functioning solar park also contributes positively to local biodiversity..

The expected operating lifespan of a solar park is at least 30 years, but in our experience  most solar parks have a longer life. Solar energy production also require minimal maintenance.

We expect construction to  take 3–6 months, depending on the size and condition of the land. Connecting the park to the grid and receiving permits and approval from the County Administrative Board and government authorities often takes between 1–3 years. This means that first contact, construction and delivery of the finished facility requires 2–4 years.

The installation of a solar park is almost entirely reversible. The plot holding the park can be returned to its former state and large parts of the instalment will be reused and the modules recycled. 

When the lease agreement expires and the facility has reached the end of its operating life, we make a joint decision on how to proceed. The park can either be removed, in which we restore the land to be used for other purposes, or we replace any worn out parts and continue to produce renewable electricity together.

We work for the long-term and, in association with our strong Nordic capital partners, look forward to a secure partnership between us as owners and you as landowner. Our business plan is based on long-term thinking, with many years of experience and competence in large-scale solar power systems.
