German solar provider IBC Solar has constructed three turnkey solar PV power plants in Northern Bavaria, Germany, in the space of just three months.
The solar parks are owned by IBC's premium partner Main-Spessart-Solar GmbH and are located in the region of Lower Franconia two 1.4 MW plants in Schöllkrippen and Mönchberg, and a larger 6.7 MW solar farm in Marktheidenfeld.
All three parks were connected to the grid a mere three months after construction began, with alacrity of the essence in order for the projects to be eligible for the highest possible FIT under Germanys Energiewende (EEG).
The Marktheidenfeld project is to be operated partly as community solar installation, with residents in the surrounding areas able to possess an exclusive stake in the energy produced on site. Returns are estimated to be around 6%, Main-Spessart-Solar MD Bernd Büttner revealed.
"Having the communities involved was especially important to us, and the response we got was overwhelmingly positive," he said. "We are especially pleased about the fact that we will be running the largest as a community solar park."
