Welcome to Äleby Solpark
A new solar park is planned for Äleby farm on Sela Island in Strängnäs municipality. The park will cover a total of about 60 hectares.
The plan is for the park to start construction in winter 2024 and be ready to start supplying green local electricity in spring 2025. The electricity generated by the park will not only ensure that the local area has access to fossil-free electricity, it will also help to stabilize the Swedish electricity grid.
The area for the park is ideal for solar energy as it has good solar radiation, good grid connection, offers good opportunities to show respect for protected environments and has an easy-to-work ground for easy installation. Once the park has reached its lifespan, it will be just as easy to dismantle for recycling. The land will then be immediately available for other uses.

A dream for pollinating insects
In connection with the construction of the solar park, we and HSB Södermanland will start a project together with SLU – Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala. The aim of the project is to monitor how different measures can benefit pollinating insects in and around the park. Our hope is that a flowering solar park can promote species richness in the agricultural landscape, and thus be of direct benefit to the cultivation of nearby farms.
Unique seed mix for solar parks
As a first step, we sow a perennial bee mixture in one part of the park. The company Olssons Fröer has developed a special solar park seed mix for us where the flowers provide plenty of nectar and pollen for bumblebees and wild bees, while the plants must not grow too high and shade the panels.

Frequently asked questions about solar parks
In many countries, solar parks are a common phenomenon and an important contributor to the electricity system. However, they are still not as common in Sweden. In our knowledge bank we have collected a number of questions that you may be looking for answers to.
Is your company interested in building a solar park?
Make sure that all the electricity your business consumes is produced by solar energy. By owning your own solar farm, you are taking an active role in the energy transition that is happening all over the world.
Want to know more about the practicalities? Contact us to arrange a site visit to the solar park. On site we can show and explain how it works and tell you more about the benefits of investing in solar energy.
