Launch of Sun in the City in Rotterdam

Sun in the City // Frank Hanswijk

The Rotterdam alderman for energy transition has launched a campaign for more solar roofs in the city by installing the first solar shield in Rotterdam. Solar shields make roofs with solar panels visible in the streets and invite neighbours to share their experience with installing and using solar panels. The solar shields read ‘this roof produces solar power’.

Solar roof owners can add a sticker adding: ‘for more information: ring the door’ if they like. The solar shields enable local residents interested in solar energy to connect with their neighbours and to get first-hand information on getting their own solar roof easily. Solar shields are part of the campaign Sun in the City, which aims to spread the use of solar power in Rotterdam. This summer, we will install solar shields at the doorposts of Rotterdam residents that own solar panels.

Sun in the City is an initiative of Climate Focus, Personal Architecture and HilgersomDeen duurzaam, supported by the City of Rotterdam and the Province of South Holland.
