August 17 (Renewables Now) - Germany's EnBW Energie Baden-Wuerttemberg AG (ETR:EBK) has begun the construction of a 17.3-MW solar park in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg which is expected to supply clean electricity to 5,810 households.

The solar farm will be located in the town of Emmingen-Liptingen, southern Germany, and will be Baden-Wuerttemberg's largest solar facility in operation so far, EnBW said on Tuesday.

It will comprise more than 32,000 solar modules which will be installed on an area of 15 hectares (37.07 acres). Once operational by the end of 2022, Emmingen-Liptingen is expected to produce up to 20.3 million kWh of green electricity annually which will be enough to save 12,750 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

The Karlsruhe-based power company expanded its solar business in the home market in June with the acquisition of a portfolio of pre-developed solar projects of 400 MW in Brandenburg from Procon Solar GmbH. The deal includes an option for the transfer of a further 400 MW of early-stage projects by the beginning of next February.
