Phoenix Solar builds 14.4 MW PV project in Germany; production to hit 18 MW

The first 14.4 MWp have already been connected to the grid of the utility company envia. The power plant is located in Senftenberg, Brandenburg, Germany on the site of a former opencast mining area.

The company says that since the building plan for the project had been legally finalized before the cut-off date of March 25, the second construction phase can be carried out in the second half of this year and will not be subject to the additional feed-in-tariff cut.

Around 186,000 thin film modules were used for the 14.4 MWp in the first construction phase. The planned extension to 18 MWp is to be carried out in the third quarter of this year. The total number of solar modules installed will then come to around 240,000 on a surface area of approximately 63 hectares.?
