Wij Säteri is located in Håbo municipality outside Stockholm and dates back to the 11th century. There is active farming here, including one of Sweden’s oldest pheasant farms.
The solar cells are mounted on two roofs facing south-east and south-west respectively. There are 99 solar panels on the roof to the southeast and 144 solar panels on the other slightly higher roof to the southwest.
The advantage of splitting the system in two different directions is that the farm will have a more even production profile as one part of the PV system captures the sun earlier in the day and the other part captures the afternoon sun more efficiently.
