RGE Energy AG has teamed with BP Solar to build a 46 MW PV installation in Koethen, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.
Approximately 210,000 crystalline photovoltaic modules with an output of 220 W each will be supplied by BP Solar and installed by RGE Energy AG. The project launch is planned for the third quarter of 2009. Approvals are currently being processed.
BP Solar notes that it is offering a guarantee on yield for the solar modules it supplies – a promise that, until now, had been reserved for turnkey projects developed by BP Solar. If the system does not deliver the overall energy yields guaranteed by BP Solar, BP Solar will cover the difference on the basis of the currently valid feed-in tariff.
