Born out of the belief that solar is the most powerful solution to fixing the planet’s problems, Svea Solar was founded in a small studio apartment in the suburbs of Stockholm in 2013. Since the beginning, it has been our goal to make renewable energy an easy and profitable investment. We are, in short, tomorrow’s energy company. Today, we are the leading provider of solar power systems in Sweden and we are rapidly expanding our operations in Europe. And we’re just getting started.
