Solar panels

At Van der Valk Hotel Tiel, we took one of our most important and first steps towards sustainability a few years ago: we installed solar panels on our roof. These solar panels now generate all our energy from sunlight.

Solar panels are not only good for the environment, but also for our costs. They convert solar energy into electricity, which helps us become greener and reduce our carbon footprint.
