- Commissioning of four solar farms in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, and Hesse
- BELECTRIC was responsible for both project development and construction
- BELECTRIC takes over two of the solar power plants into its own asset company BELECTRIC Greenvest
Kolitzheim (Germany) – BELECTRIC, member of Elevion Group, is commissioning four solar power plants in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, and Hesse in Germany. The photovoltaic plants with a total installed capacity of more than 76 megawatts were not only constructed by BELECTRIC, but also developed in-house.
The solar energy company BELECTRIC is commissioning four more solar farms in Germany. The plants were constructed near Deubach (48 MWp) in the district of Lauda-Königshofen, Oberrammersdorf (10.7 MWp) in the district of Ansbach, Reddehausen (7.6 MWp) in the district of Marburg-Biedenkopf, and Rieden (10 MWp) in the district of Nürnberger Land. More than 140,000 modules were installed on the four sites. They will generate around 80 gigawatt hours of electricity and can therefore cover the annual requirements of a town like Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The solar farms were not only built by BELECTRIC, but also developed in-house. A particular focus was placed on the ecological and natural realisation of the plants. This includes, for example, flower strips, generous sowing of the areas with grass seed, and the creation of deadwood piles to provide shelter for sand lizards and slow worms. In Deubach and Rieden, a special seed is also used to protect the skylark.
The commissioning of the Deubach and Reddehausen plants also marks a milestone in BELECTRIC's history. “We are adding the two solar farms to the portfolio of our asset company BELECTRIC Greenvest and thus are entering the IPP (Independent Power Producer) business segment. This means that we are selectively adding plants to our own portfolio and, as the owner, are also producing and marketing solar electricity”, explains Dr Thorsten Blanke, Managing Director of BELECTRIC. “In this way, we are expanding our value chain and complementing our expertise by looking through the glasses of our customers.”
BELECTRIC has sold the Rieden solar farm to its long-standing customer N-ERGIE Regenerativ GmbH. The Oberrammersdorf PV plant was transferred to Bürger-Energie Lichtenau eG, PV Wiedersbach GmbH & Co. KG, and Solarpark Osterburg GmbH & Co. KG and offers participation opportunities for citizens. BELECTRIC is responsible for the operation and maintenance of all projects.
