Located in the municipality of Sukow, close to Mecklenburg-West Pomeranias capital Schwerin, the system will be built on the former Sukow landfill, next to the Schwerin-Crivitz railway line.
IBC Solars solar-funds department was responsible for purchasing the property and project development.
According to studies carried out by the "Deutscher Wetterdienst" (German Meteorological Service), this region has reportedly experienced constant irradiation values of almost 1,000 watts per square meter over the last 20 years.
The installation, which covers an area of 31 hectares and will comprise 488,000 photovoltaic modules, will generate around 10,500,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually. IBC Solar says that residents in the region will have the opportunity to invest in the plant by buying shares of the solar fund.
Breaking the ground of the construction site, Prime Minister of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania Erwin Sellering commented: "Its is our goal to actively push the expansion of renewable energies in order to create future-proof jobs and add value by locally producing energy. The Sukow Solar Park is a prime example of how residents and municipalities in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can directly benefit from the expansion of renewable energies."
