Centrosolar Group will be the project partner for the solar fund of the investment bank, “DCM Solarfonds 4.” The bank will give investors the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of ten solar roof plants, erected on the flat roofs of German companies ALDI Süd and ALDI Nord. The plants are estimated to have an aggregate output of 7.8MW.
Centrosolar will select and supply the solar modules and other components for the DCM Solarfonds 4 project while the company’s JV with Pohlen Bedachungen, Centroplan, will operate as project developer. Other project partners include Pohlen Solar, which will be responsible for the construction of the plants, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, which will be in charge of the monitoring and quality assurance for the plants.
The solar plants are expected to be connected to the grid by the end of 2010.
