Vera Gäde-Butzlaff, CEO of GASAG, said: “The new PV plant is now producing more than 50 million kWh of eco-electricity in the GASAG group with sun, wind and biogas – 25% more than a year ago.
“And our plan is further growth. In this way, we underline our willingness to drive decentralized, renewable and efficient energy generation in the region. By participating in a solar installation, municipalities can not only benefit from the revenues. The plants can also contribute to the implementation of municipal energy concepts.”
