he first installation on the sorting centre in Den Hoorn will be put in operation. The other sorting centers will follow during the course of next year.

All together, the solar panels will produce approximately 4.8 million kilowatt hour of green energy per year, which is the equivalent of the energy consumption of around 1,500 households.

The 1,160 panels that Eneco will install on each sorting centre will produce 40 percent of the energy requirements of these centres.

Gerrit Mastenbroek, managing director of Parcels and Logistics of PostNL: "When all the solar panels have been installed, PostNL will be one of the largest producers of solar energy in the Netherlands. This is an important step towards realisation of our sustainability ambitions."
