Renewable Energy Corporation (REC) was pleased to provide its modules for what is being hailed as the largest solar rooftop system in Northern Europe. The PV installation, located on the headquarters of Danish insurance company Topdanmark, was constructed by DrivhusEffekten and connected to the grid on August 17.
The rooftop PV system has an annual production capacity of 752,000kWh and uses 3,042 REC Peak Energy Series modules, which were supplied by EWS. “We are very pleased that DrivhusEffekten recommended REC modules for this large project”, said Luc Graré, senior vice president sales and marketing cells and modules, REC Solar. “With retail electricity prices in Denmark higher than the actual cost of solar systems, we see a promising potential for the Danish solar market. Another benefit is net-metering that allows customers to use and get credit for unused electricity thereby reducing their energy bill.”
