German energy company N-ergie AG has brought live two solar parks with a combined capacity of 29 MWp in Bavaria which are expected to produce 31.03 million kWh of clean electricity per year.
The Fuchsloch solar farm with a capacity of 19 MWp is located in the Martinsheim municipality, southern Germany, and features about 42,000 modules while the 10-MWp Rossgraben plant was built about two kilometres away and utilises about 22,000 modules.
The electricity produced by the two plants will be enough to meet the needs of some 7,700 households, N-ergie said on Wednesday.
For the significant part of the output, corresponding to 22 MW, the power company will not receive subsidies under the EEG scheme and will offer it to communities in the region through power purchase agreements (PPA).
Last year, the power company commissioned another 9.2-MWp solar park in the neighbouring Seinsheim municipality and the bulk of the electricity from this park is not subsidised.
Nuremberg, Bavaria-based N-ergie has a green power generation portfolio of 153 MW, including solar, wind and biomass-fired plants. The company operates 39 solar parks in 29 municipalities primarily in the region.
