BUCHAREST (Romania), July 19 (SeeNews) - E.ON Energie Romania, a unit of German energy utility E.ON, said on Monday that it has built a 351.75 kilowatts peak (kWp) solar power plant worth over 320,000 euro ($378,239) for local poultry producer Agricola International Bacau.
The photovoltaic (PV) plant is expected to generate 470.36 MWh of electricity per year, E.ON Energie Romania said in a press release.
The solar plant featuring 1,050 photovoltaic panels mounted on the ground at Agricola's 4 Lilieci Farm in Bacau will meet around 25% of the farm's annual energy needs and will help cut CO2 emissions by 134 tonnes per year.
