S.A.G. Solarstrom to build 13-MW PV power plant in Czech Republic


S.A.G. Solarstrom will build a 13-MWp photovoltaic power plant at a former military site in St?íbro, Czech Republic–the company’s first in the country and its largest project to date. The installation, said to be the biggest PV system planned in the republic, is scheduled to begin construction in July and be completed by the fall.
The ground-mounted system will use Yingli Solar multicrystalline modules and Kaco XP350-HV inverters. The power generated at the site–about 13.65 million KW-hr per year–is estimated to be sufficient for at least 3100 households, according to the Freiburg, Germany-based solar integration firm.

The Czech Republic’s feed-in tariff stipulates that PV plants capable of more than 30 KWp in output receive CZK12.79 (just under €0.48) for each kilowatt-hour of fed-in electricity, according to S.A.G. This rate is guaranteed for 20 years.

“The local partners we’re working with in the Czech Republic have become familiar with the necessary administrative steps and approval procedures in the country over a number of years,” said Karl Kuhlmann, CEO of S.A.G. “In this project, for example, we are collaborating with our partner Solarpower. This enables us to ensure a high level of planning security.”
