May 13 (Renewables Now) - NaturEnergy, a unit of German renewable energy supplier Naturstrom AG, has brought live a 5.6-MWp solar park in Brandenburg which is expected to produce about 5.2 million kWh of green electricity a year.

A specific feature of the solar park located in the Breddin municipality is the east-west orientation of the modules which will enable a higher power production in the morning and evening hours when there is a peak in demand.

The east-west orientation of the modules with a lower feed-in at midday, when solar parks with the classic south orientation generate more power, and higher electricity production in the morning and evening hours will contribute significantly to power grid stability, according to Naturstrom's chief executive Thomas Banning.

Another advantage of the orientation is that the installation of the modules requires less area because they can be placed closer to each other.

The Breddin solar park is expected to generate electricity equal to the annual consumption of 1,625 three-person households and save 1,600 tonnes of carbon emissions.

The project was awarded by Federal Network Agency as part of an innovation tender.

NaturEnergy, founded at the end of 2020, operates 116.7 MW of generation capacity, including 49.6 MWp of solar and 67.1 MW of wind.
