LEAG is the joint brand of lignite-focused Lausitz Energie Bergbau AG and Lausitz Energie Kraftwerke AG. This is the first photovoltaic (PV) park on own land for the Lusatian energy company, and the third built by Juwi in Welzow. 

LEAG is also installing 535 kW of rooftop solar capacity in Cottbus and Luebbenau.

Juwi will be in charge of the 10-MW solar park’s operation and maintenance, while LEAG will be marketing the solar electricity.
