Naps Group's management, development and design department, warehouse, and direct sales and retail sales organizations are located in Finland. In Estonia, we have our own ISO 14000 environmentally-certified solar module factory, and a sales office serving the Estonian and Baltic markets.
Naps Solar's largest shareholder is the world's first recycling fund, the Taaleri Kiertotalous Ky. Additional shareholders contain six major domestic energy companies Vantaan Energia, Kokkolan Energia, Pori Energia, Rauman Energia, Vakka-Suomen Voima and Oulun Seudun Sähkö.
Aiming for a strong growth
Solar energy is the fastest growing energy production form in the world. Naps aims to grow its business strongly by supplying high quality, competitive solar photovoltaic solutions for customer needs.
In addition to pursuing growth, Naps' core values include accountability. Our solutions contribute to the fight against climate change.
We also guarantee solar modules at least 80% nominal power for 25 years. Together with our customers, we have been able to prove that Naps' solutions have been working well for four decades. A high-quality photovoltaic system stands the test of time maintenance free.
The installation work of our systems always involves local contractors to ensure the best cost-effectiveness and local employment. We respond to the quality of our systems and train our partners for safe, durable and high quality photovoltaic activities.
To achieve growth, Naps also invests heavily in its own development work and partnerships. Naps' Senior Advisor D.Sc. (Tech.) Mikko A. Juntunen develops a new nanotechnology solar cell that is completely black with Aalto University. It absorbs all light, which improves the efficiency of the cell. Our sales director Markus Andersén is the head of the Finnish Association for the Solar Industry. In addition, we do cooperative development with the energy companies belonging to our shareholders and our main shareholder, Taaleri. Our goal is to introduce more advanced decentralized energy production and storage solutions to our customers.
Roots in the history of the industry
Naps Solar has been the forerunner in the world solar photovoltaic market since 1981, when Finnish Neste Oil Company founded its photovoltaic unit Neste Advanced Power Systems (NAPS) around its research and development business. Fortum later abandoned its ownership and now our main shareholder is the world's first circulation economy fund. Today Naps logo is still recognizable from decades old, well-functioning systems.
