Sonnquest has completed the development of a 2 MW solar park in Austria under a contract with Wien Energie. The PV park has now officially started operations. The Guntramsdorf PV plant is one of the first, if not the first, PV plant in Austria to go online. 8,136 solar modules were installed on an area as large as six football fields. The total capacity of the PV park is pegged at 2.034 MW and the park has been officially in operation since Wednesday. The complete produced PV capacity will be fed into the Austrian power grid providing enough electricity for around 800 households.
Wien Energie has around 50 PV plants under its wings totalling around 12 MW. 19 of these with approximately 5.8 MW in total are under the citizen-solar parks concept. Wien Energy seeks to generate 50% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030, and will therefore be investing more in solar and wind projects.
