Member of the state parliament and chairman of the SPD energy committee Olaf Schulze, local investors and Conergy Germany boss Norbert Apfel launched operation of the solar park, with the symbolic pressing of the red button. With this, said Conergy, Tarp supersedes the plant in Hörup, which previously held the record for the largest continuous solar park in northern Germany.
The company went on to say that on a site four times the size of the Hamburg football stadium, the park generates 5.5 million kilowatt hours of solar power each year, thus reportedly supplying around half of all Tarp residents.
Member of the state parliament Olaf Schulze stated in his inaugural speech: With the two largest solar parks in northern Germany, Schleswig-Flensburg is a real solar pioneer and with it one of the greenest districts in the state. This is primarily also thanks to far-sighted investors who made green energy from the region for the region possible.
