  • GP JOULE's 83-MW solar park in East Frisia, Germany, is set to power over 26,600 households and expand to 107 MW, creating a cutting-edge hybrid energy park.

German energy solutions company GP JOULE GmbH has commissioned an 83-MW solar park in East Frisia, Germany, on April 19. The solar park, known as The Sande Hybrid Energy Park, was built for Friesen Elektra Green Energy AG and consists of over 145,000 modules on 95 hectares of land. It is expected to produce around 80,000 GWh of electricity annually, enough to power over 26,600 households.

GP JOULE is already planning to expand the solar park by adding 37 MW to the existing capacity. The solar park is integrated into Friesen Elektra's existing wind farm, creating a hybrid energy park with a total installed capacity of around 107 MW. Friesen Elektra has also agreed to supply solar power to German steel maker Salzgitter AG and is looking into green hydrogen production with a 2 GW electrolysis project expected to be completed by 2030.
