When was the first ground-mounted system actually built in Germany? 🤔

In July 1983, history was made on the North Sea island of Pellworm: Germany's first ground-mounted photovoltaic system was commissioned. Back then, the system achieved an output of 300 kWp and was even the largest PV system in Europe at the time with an area of 28,000 m². 💡

By the way, the oldest functioning PV system in Europe is located on the roof of the Lugano University of Applied Sciences in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland. The 10-kW system has been supplying electricity for 41 years. 🌞
