We are very happy with the positive response and demand for our first solar group buying campaigns. We ran three neighborhood campaigns in Skåne during the summer and fall and were happy to find the best offer for 10 households. First of these systems have already been installed with the others to follow soon, marking an important milestone for GRØNBID only months after the founding of the company.
The year 2018, in general, was so far the busiest year of new PV installations and at the same time the sunniest for decades. Even though most of us enjoyed the warm weather and sun – the dry summer caused extreme conditions in the Nordic electricity market. Electricity price rose to its highest level in ten years in Sweden. Luckily, owning a solar system is a lucrative way to protect against and benefit from such price increases.
By the end of the year, we helped ten households purchase high-quality PV systems at the best price from local installation contractors. In spring 2019 there will be 84 kW of new solar capacity installed that will reduce CO2-emissions almost 18 tonnes a year.
2019 will have a lot to offer and we’re getting up to full speed. In the next months, we’ll update our platform to make it even more user-friendly and intuitive. We’re also launching several campaigns in the spring, so if you’re thinking about getting solar panels on your roof and want us to get your whole neighborhood in a group buying campaign, reach out to us at email@example.com or click here.
Stay tuned when we open our next campaign in Bunkeflostrand in February 2019.
