German renewables developer Wpd AG announced on Monday that it will soon start building three solar photovoltaic (PV) projects with a combined capacity of some 1.5 MW in Taiwan.
The largest of the three is a 1-MW rooftop solar project located in the city of Taoyuan, an industrial centre adjacent to New Taipei. There, Wpd will install the array on top of a hall complex of materials manufacturer Manloy Metal Industrial Co Ltd.
The rooftop scheme is Wpd’s largest solar PV project in Taiwan to date, and will be capable of generating 1,251 MWh of green power, the German renewables operator said.
The remaining two projects will result in ground-mounted solar farms totalling some 0.4 MW. The installations will be located in close proximity to each other in Chiayi County in the western part of Taiwan.
The three solar plants will operate under 20-year power purchase agreements that Wpd signed with Taiwanese grid operator TPC, the German company added.
Wpd has so far realised 38 solar PV projects for a total of 9.25 MW in Taiwan.
