Gehrlicher Solar Starts Construction of15.2 MWp solar park Rothenburg IV

Greentech Lead Germany: Gehrlicher Solar has started the
construction of solar park Rothenburg IV that has the capacity to generate
about 15 million kilowatt hours of green electricity from just 15.2 megawatt of
power.

The solar park will provide sufficient electricity to
cover the needs of around 4,280 three-person households and complements the
already existing solar parks Rothenburg I-III (21.8 MWp).

“We have had great support in the realization of
this project, especially from the political representatives of the city of
Rothenburg and the administrative district of Görlitz, but also from the
special purpose association of the airport,” said Klaus Gehrlicher, CEO of
Gehrlicher Solar.

“Gehrlicher Solar’s vision is a sustainable energy supply
exclusively from renewable energy,” Gehrlicher added. “However, all involved
partners like airport operator, city, administrative district and local
associations can profit from the construction of solar park Rothenburg — above
all companies from the region which are used with priority as subcontractors
for the construction of the solar park.”

The solar park is built on a total of 30 hectares
encompassing the previous military airport of Rothenburg in Saxony. Gehrlicher
Solar will build up 25 hectares of this area with substructures as well as in
each case 7.6MWp solar modules from Yingli and BYD and 16 inverters from SMA
that convert the direct current into grid-conforming alternating current.

Commissioning of the solar park is planned for
30th of September. Compared to energy generated from fossil fuels, the
plant will save approximately 13,500 tons of CO2 yearly.

Gehrlicher Solar starts construction of 35 MW solar park at
Perleberg Airport

Earlier this year Gehrlicher Solar started the
construction of a 35 MW solar park at the Perleberg Airport. The solar system is
expected to generate 33 million kilowatt hours of green electricity annually,
enough to power around 9,300 households.
