Germany: 7.4 MW rooftop solar system completed

Located in Philippsburg, Baden-Wuerttemberg atop the Goodyear Dunlop logistics center, it has a power output of 7.4 megawatts (MWs), which reportedly covers the annual requirements of around 1,800 households.

The installation is spread across an area of 87,000 square meters and is fitted with 95,500 First Solar thin film solar modules. It was connected to the grid at the end of last year.

"Companies that use their buildings for energy production observe not only an improved image, but can create additional income. In addition, surfaces are used in an efficient and economic matter," commented Lars Falck, managing director juwi Solar.
