Aug 27, 2012 - German photovoltaic systems provider IBC Solar said today it had started the construction of a 8.7 MW solar park in Cremlingen in the German state of Lower Saxony.
The construction of the plant is expected to be completed at the end of 2012.
IBC solar will then sell the project, called Schandelah GmbH & Co KG.
Citizens will be given the opportunity to acquire a stake in the park, the company said.
The solar park is expected to cover the electricity needs of around 1,950 households, thus offsetting 4,366 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, IBC estimated.
