Large solar installations in Germany

RGE Energy AG is partnering with BP Solar in planning one of the world’s largest solar projects. The large-scale PV installation with over 46MW peak (MWp) will be built in Koethen, Saxony-Anhalt. Around 210,000 crystalline photovoltaic modules with an output of 220 watt peak each will be supplied by BP Solar and installed by RGE Energy AG. The project launch is planned for the third quarter of 2009, the approval procedure is being processed currently, and by the end of the year, all BP Solar modules are set to be installed. The planned solar system will deliver around 43,000MW hours per year of green electricity. This is enough to yearly supply about 11,500 four-people-households with electricity and to save around 25,600tns of CO2 emissions. The project in Koethen is part of a cooperation agreement between the two companies that covers the installation of solar projects totalling 66MW output. In addition to Koethen, other projects planned include a 15MW solar system at Eberswalde airport and an option for another 15MW.
