With the sun in mind!
At Novi, we like to set a good example for sound investments and be a driving force for a long-term sustainable future. Therefore, as part of one of our management projects, we installed some of Sweden’s most centrally-located solar panel facilities in Stockholm and Gothenburg.
A total of 6 facilities comprising about 2,000 square metres were installed on rooftops around Stockholm City and Gothenburg. Estimated production at all facilities is 260,000 kWh/year, which will entail a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of 2,300 tonnes. This corresponds to charging around 380 000 000 iPhones, driving 35 000 000 kilometres in a modern Tesla or making 235 000 000 cups of coffee. This means that our cities will be a little greener and that the people who work in our properties can take a coffee break with a clear conscience.
We call it the Novi effect.
“Providing our properties with solar energy is a matter of course, for us and SEB Trygg Liv. Novi and SEB Trygg Liv adopt a long-term approach and this type of investment gives us returns over a longer period and above all, a more sustainable future for society.”

The installations were set up together with Save by Solar, which is one of the leading companies in Sweden in the area of solar panel installation. In total, enough electricity is produced to meet the energy needs of 53 normal-sized villas for an entire year.
“Save by Solar wants to drive development towards a renewable society by changing the electricity market from the ground up. The company achieves this by creating simple, profitable and secure solutions for commercial property owners and businesses. Save by Solar sees a future where companies take control of their own electricity supply through solar energy and energy storage in particular. The company’s goal is to create the best possible conditions for this. Through Save by Solar’s solutions, companies can reduce their dependence on the major electricity suppliers and thus their electricity costs, while also helping the environment without losing sight of their core business.”
