About Enie.nl

Enie.nl was founded in 2013 by the brothers Patrick and Milan van der Meulen. The goal of Enie.nl is to make solar energy accessible for everyone in the Netherlands. They do this by leasing solar panels to house owners and businesses.

The history of Enie.nl started ten years ago when Patrick & Milan saw the documentary 'An Inconvenient Truth' by Al Gore. At a young age, the brothers became aware of the risk of the climate crisis and the opportunities of renewable energy. In 2013 they decided to start Enie.nl. A supplier of solar energy in the Netherlands. Enie.nl is now one of the market leaders in leasing solar panels to consumers and businesses. The team consists of around 25 people who are daily involved in achieving the company mission. Since the start Enie.nl has helped thousands of home owners and business to switch to renewable energy.

We strongly believe that business could be used as a force for good. Entrepreneurship and sustainable organizations should have a leading role in the transition to a renewable energy economy and for that reason we joined the powerful network of B Corp.
