German utility EnBW building two subsidy-free solar projects in Brandenburg

Power Technology:

German utility EnBW has started construction of two subsidy-free solar photovoltaic projects with 300MW capacity in Brandenburg.

EnBW photovoltaic project development head Thorsten Jörß said: “By expanding solar energy, we can substantially advance the energy transition. The two subsidy-free solar parks in Alttrebbin and Gottesgabe will make a major contribution to the energy transition without any extra cost to consumers in the form of the surcharge under the Renewable Energy Sources Act.”

The company will develop the two solar facilities, with 700,000 solar panels simultaneously. Construction works will last for one year.

Energy from the projects will power around 90,000 households, while avoiding nearly 200,000t of carbon emissions annually.

LONGi Solar will supply its bifacial solar panels for the projects, while the central inverters are supplied by Siemens.

The two parks follow on from Germany’s largest solar park, Weesow-Willmersdorf, which was completed by EnBW in Werneuchen, Brandenburg.
