Tesla’s Tilburg Site Has Massive Solar Roof
Kees van der Leun, a clean energy advocate, noted that Tesla’s Tilburg assembly plant in the Netherlands has a rooftop covered with a solar installation.
Solar covers some 43,000 square meters and is estimated to generate up to 3 MW of electricity.
It’s one of the latest and largest installations in the Netherlands.
The Gigafactory in Nevada (or Gigafactory 2 in Buffalo, NY) hasn’t yet received its solar installations.
An even bigger solar installation is expected at Tesla’s battery Gigafactory in Nevada. Though Tesla has not provided a timeline for its install.
One of NL's latest & largest rooftop solar PV systems, at @Tesla in Tilburg; shiny!
Roof is 43,000 m2, densely packed, must be something like 3 MW.
