SOLARENERGY FROM DISUSED LANDFILL SITES: PFALZSOLAR BUILDS FURTHER LARGE SCALE PROJECTS IN 2014Ludwishafen , 25.08.14
At the same time, in Nessa, a district of Teuchern (Saxony-Anhalt), another large scale project is under construction. To ensure the commissioning until the end of this month, the installation teams a working with full speed, too. The project is realized in the context of a further cooperation with Bürgerservice Trier. With an overall capacity of 1.06 Megawatt, the ground mounted solar power plant „Nessa“ annually feeds round about 1.1 million kilowatt-hours in the electricity grid. This is theoretically enough energy to provide nearly one third of the people living in Nessa with electricity.
The feed-in-tariff for both power plants amounts to approximately nine cents per kilowatt-hour. “Even though the feed-in-tariffs are quite low, photovoltaic still pays off in Germany” says Thomas Kercher, CEO of Pfalzsoalar GmbH, with conviction. Apart from excellent conditions, such as for example a nearby grid connection point, especially know-how and experience are crucial for the economic success of a project. “We develop, construct and operate solar power plants successfully for more than ten years. But we are not going to rest here. With every new project we are getting a little better, aiming to get the most out of it – technically as well as economically.”
