Conergy has finished work on its 1.75MW rooftop PV system on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria. The system, situated on the roof of coffee roaster Emicela in Agüimes, took just two months to complete and will generate up to 2,600 MWh of electricity annually.
This latest installation takes Conergy’s solar portfolio on the Canary Islands past the 12MW mark, and with 7,600 Conergy Power Plus photovoltaic modules and 72 IPG series inverters it is the largest to date. Funding for the project was provided by Spanish banking conglomerate Bankia.
“There is a clear shift of trends in Spain from free-field installations to the rooftops – whether on industrial buildings such as here on the Canaries or on private houses,” said Luis Jiménez Gutiérrez, head of Conergy Spain. “The potential here is immense, despite of the cap on the market. Doing good business is still possible.”
