Norwegian renewables company Statkraft has announced that it is on the way to completing its 3.3MW solar power plant later this year. The solar farm is located in Latina, about an hour south of Rome, and will consist of 15,700 solar panels installed in an area of approximately 96,000 square metres. Total investment in the project is said to be approximately €13 million.
“The construction of our first solar park is an important milestone in our work to meet the world’s need for pure energy,” commented Jon Brandsar, Executive Vice President of Statkraft. “Solar power is a new energy source for us, and we expect it to grow in the years ahead due to technological developments, cost reductions and favourable framework conditions”.
