Solnet and Kesko to build a HUGE solar utility on the roof of K-citymarket Tammisto


Solnet Green Energy and Kesko are building a greener world. Finland's largest property-specific solar utility, a nearly 1600-solar panel-complex will be up and running on K-citymarket Tammisto by the end of this June.


The utility of K-citymarket Tammisto will be the largest property-specific solar utility in Finland. The utility's peak power will be 503 kWp (kilowatt peak). Nearly 1,600 solar panels will be installed on the roof of the property. When the power is highest during sunny summer days, the solar utility will cover around half of the property's electricity consumption.

The customers of K-citymarket Tammisto can monitor the production of solar power in real time on in-store screens. The charging point for electric cars located at the store side will provide electricity produced by solar power. Cars can be charged by using a contactless K-Plussa card and charging is free for customers.

Kesko works on a long-term basis to mitigate climate change and wants to promote the production of renewable energy by investing in a solar utility.

Avanto Ventures’ JP Virtanen and Antti Rantanen seed-funded Solnet in 2014, and have advised Solnet’s management team from the very beginning. Today Solnet is a part of our venturing program and work in our co-working premises in Hernesaari.

Great to see Solnet and Kesko bring their ideas to fruitition in a world-class-way. Nice one Arttur, Kaj and the whole team of Solnet!
