Collaboration

A green business

At BeGreen, we collaborate with landowners on the green transition through long-term lease agreements. Partnering on solar panels presents an attractive alternative to traditional crop production on agricultural lands and can ensure a steady and stable return.

The beginning of a long-lasting collaboration

At BeGreen, we collaborate with landowners on the green transition through long-term lease agreements. A partnership for solar panels is an attractive alternative to traditional crop production on agricultural land and can ensure a steady and stable return. At the same time, solar parks contribute to the green transition, energy independence, increased biodiversity, and protection of groundwater.

Project model

When BeGreen enters into an agreement with a landowner for a solar panel installation, it marks the beginning of a long-term collaboration

1.

Options og lejeaftale

Samarbejdet består af en indledende optionsperiode, hvor den nuværende landbrugsaktivitet fortsættes uændret. 

2.

Lokalplan process

Herefter søger BeGreen om godkendelse af lokalplan samt øvrige tilladelser hos kommunen, her kan den nuværende landbrugsaktivitet også fortsætte uændret.

3.

Planlægning og opbygning

Når tilladelserne er på plads, starter planlægningen og etableringen af solcelleanlægget. 

4.

Produktion af energi

Hvorefter der følger 40 års elproduktion der giver løbende afkast til jordejeren. BeGreen har både ejerskab og drift på egne parker.

5.

Reetablering af landjord

Efter 40 års produktion fjernes anlægget og arealet kan igen anvendes til landbrugsproduktion, hvis det er ønsket.

1.

Options and lease agreement

The collaboration consists of an initial option period during which the current agricultural activities continue unchanged.

2.

Local planning process

BeGreen applies for approval of the local plan and other permits from the municipality, during which the current agricultural activities can also continue unchanged.

3.

Planning and construction

Once the permits are in place, the planning and establishment of the solar panel installation begin.

4.

Energy production

This concludes in 40 years of electricity production, providing ongoing returns to the landowner. BeGreen both owns and operates its own parks.

5.

Re-establishment of land

After 40 years of production, the installation is removed, and the area can again be used for agricultural production if desired.

As a landowner of a solar park, you are ensured a stable income

Payment of rent can occur through two settlement models.

1.

A fixed price per hectare per year. The land lease is determined at the agreement's commencement and is price-adjusted throughout the entire contract period.

2.

A production-dependent lease, which constitutes a fixed percentage of the total production of the facility.

FAQ

We always strive to place our solar panels in a way that integrates best with the landscape. Therefore, we primarily work with areas that are as flat as possible. Additionally, solar parks are positioned as close to local transformer stations as possible to avoid the need for extensive cable laying.

BeGreen’s solar parks contribute to a rich and diverse wildlife by ensuring access for smaller animals and amphibians under the fences surrounding the parks. At the same time, we make room for larger animals by establishing wildlife corridors around or through our parks where animals naturally roam. A significant focus on planting locally native plant species also ensures that insects and bees thrive around our solar parks.

At BeGreen, we acknowledge that becoming a neighbor to a solar park can seem daunting. Therefore, we do everything we can to make our solar parks as inconspicuous as possible for our neighbors. At the same time, we always establish a belt of planting all around our parks, so that after just a few years the parks will largely be hidden from the naked eye behind trees and bushes.

When we convert agricultural land into solar parks, we also lend a helping hand to both climate, environment, and biodiversity. As solar energy helps reduce CO2 emissions, it is a significant factor in the green transition aimed at averting the climate crisis. BeGreen’s solar parks also help protect groundwater, as the areas where BeGreen has solar panels are not sprayed with pesticides. Last but not least, biodiversity is significantly increased in the local areas where BeGreen has solar parks. We ensure to sow and plant a mixture of grasses, flowers, bushes, and trees on and around our parks, thus ensuring diverse nature in areas where previously only one or two different crops were planted each year.

 

Key criteria

At BeGreen, we consider several parameters when contemplating the placement of our solar panel installations

Preferably open, flat, contiguous areas where a potential installation minimally affects neighboring properties

The area should also be suitable for solar parks

Close to other technical installations such as wind power or industrial areas, or near other infrastructure such as highways

Areas without protections or other significant cultural or landscape considerations

Should solar energy be your next crop?

BeGreen owns and operates its own parks and only enters into agreements with landowners where we are assured of immediate off-take of the production.
