During an open house on May 1, Gehrlicher Solar debuted its newest rooftop PV installations that sit atop four sites owned by Seydaland Vereinigte Agrarbetriebe . The 3.1MW solar projects in Wittenberg, Germany cover over 333,218 square feet of Seydaland’s administration site, warehouse, production facility and barns.
Jens Fromm, CEO of Seydaland, was enthusiastic about the solar project, stating, “As a company that stands for sustainable agriculture, it is very important to us to contribute our part in supplying electricity generated from renewable sources. We have therefore decided to operate photovoltaic systems alongside biogas plants. Gehrlicher Solar has proven to be an excellent partner for the design, planning, and construction of these systems.”
The four solar systems were connected to the grid between August and December 2010 and have the potential to generate 2.2 million kWh of solar energy. Seydaland Vereinigte Agrarbetriebe is the owner and operator of the solar projects.
