Found in Rickertsreute around Lake Constance, the ground-mounted solar plant will certainly be improved an area of 12 hectares (29.65 acres) and also will certainly begin feeding clean electrical energy to the general public grid in October, Steag claimed on Monday.

2 solar systems with an integrated capacity of 307 kWp will certainly likewise be established on the roofs of the barns of the nearby organic farm Rickertsreute. Together with the ground-mounted plant, the 3 systems will certainly be capable of creating 15 GWh of clean power every year which would certainly suffice to provide in between 3,500 and 4,000 ordinary families annually as well as offset 7,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.

The whole complex should be operational by February 2023.

The facilities will be developed by Steag Solar Energy Solutions GmbH (SENS) as a general professional on behalf of Bechinger e-Energie GmbH. Its manager, Hubert-Alexander Bechinger, owns the Rickertsreute organic farm.

SENS will be responsible likewise for the construction of the medium-voltage cable for the grid link of the system.
