S.A.G. Solarstrom has begun the construction of a 2.13MWp photovoltaic installation on the site of a former excavated soil in the town of Spaichingen, Germany. The company signed a contract with the town whereby S.A.G will work as system contractor while the town will lease the site to the future installation investor. Several purchase inquiries have already been received for the project.
The plant is to be built on a 3.2 hectare site of the former excavated soil landfill “Hofer Ried” in the town of Spaichingen in Baden-Württemberg. The 2.13MWp system is expected to be connected to the grid by the end of this year.
Dr. Karl Kuhlmann at S.A.G said, “In this project, we are using technology, particularly in the supporting structures, that has proven its worth several times in similar projects. The photovoltaic installation in Spaichingen is thus an excellent example of a useful conversion of former waste disposal sites to generate green electricity.”
