Energiekontor adds first solar park to Group portfolio

Bremen, 18 April 2018. By connecting the Garzau-Garzin solar park to the grid, Energiekontor AG has now completed the construction of the project commenced at the end of 2017. The solar park with more than 35,000 polycrystalline photovoltaic (PV) modules and total rated power of about 10 MWp is located in the district of Märkisch Oderland in the eastern part of the German federal state of Brandenburg. The expected annual output of more than 10 million kWh would suffice in theory to supply more than 3,000 households with electricity. Since the PV project had already been awarded in the auction round in April 2016, the electricity from the park will be remunerated at an attractive feed-in tariff under the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) for a period of 20 years. Garzau-Garzin is the first solar park to be transferred to Energiekontor AG’s own portfolio.
