Canadian Solar delivers 8 MW to landfill plant


While negotiations as to the future of Germany’s solar support program continues in Berlin, the largest photovoltaic project in the Federal State of Hesse has been completed. The project is worth eight MW and spans 153,000 square meters.

40,000 Canadian Solar modules have been used in the installation which took only a "period of weeks" to be installed, according to the company. The project allocated 25 percent of the modules for use as a "public participation solar park," which itself was administered by the Solar Initiative Marburg.

"The Federal State of Hesse set an admirable target of fully meeting its energy needs through renewable energy by the year 2050," said Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. "Today, solar is a more powerful and cost efficient energy solution than ever before."

The July edition of pv magazine will include a special feature about photovoltaic applications on landfill sites and unique mounting systems solutions required.
