Located in Delitzsch, Enerparc built and financed the around 50 million project, after the company bought the unused commercial space this May. Following Germanys changes to its renewable energy law, it says large-scale photovoltaic projects in industrial areas has become more interesting.
"These underused industrial areas often provide ideal conditions for a quick and smooth implementation by already existing links to roads and medium voltage networks, as well as well-proportioned building foundations," added Enerparc in a statement released.
While the photovoltaic park was inaugurated today, September 20 by Enerparc and the Association Delitzsch-Southwest, it has been generating energy since the end of August for around 10,000 homes. It is comprised of 140,000 photovoltaic modules located across an area of 51 hectares, and is expected to produce 30 million kW of energy annually.
