The Danish Municipality of Sønderborg will soon come closer to reaching its goal of becoming CO2 neutral by 2029, thanks to the establishment of two new photovoltaic systems. With these two systems, the city plans to supply 19,000 households with electricity.

Clean Energy Advisors ApS will establish one of the plants in Lysabild. The local plan proposal for the 32-hectare plant has been outlined and submitted for public consultation. The City Council is expected to approve this plan following its meeting on 25 August.

On its website, Sønderborg Municipality revealed that Better Energy will develop the second photovoltaic facility in Stevning. This plant will reportedly be slightly larger than the one in Lysabild, covering 36 hectares of land. Together, the two systems will help the municipality cut down its CO2 emissions.

Citizens and institutions must help the city

Chairperson of the Technical and Environmental Committee Aase Nyegaard commented on the importance of these two plants, noting: “The UN’s new climate report is a clear call to make an effort for the climate, and we do so in Sønderborg Municipality. First and foremost, I am pleased that we are constantly reducing CO2 emissions and thus moving closer to a better future for our grandchildren and their descendants.”

Nyegaard went further, stressing that everyone must do their part in the fight against climate change if they wish to see the municipality achieve its goal of becoming CO2 neutral. Giving an example of this type of attitude, she praised Sønderborg’s farmers for their efforts in helping the city find suitable areas for the installation of the photovoltaic system.

With the establishment of the plants in Lysabild and Stevning, Sønderborg Municipality will come closer to achieving its climate goals. However, it still requires the help of citizens and institutions to become CO2 neutral by 2029.
