We’ll check its solar potential

RWE is aiming to massively expand renewables in its markets by 2030. That also includes extensive projects for photovoltaic systems. Collectively, we can achieve a lot by working together with farmers, companies and private landowners. They have the suitable land, and we have many years of experience and expertise in project development, construction and operation.

Our experienced team will help you to make your land available at a profit for solar power, so you can benefit long-term from the energy transition.
