Germany-based Conergy has signed an agreement to build five solar installations with a total power output of 3.6 MW for Italy-based hotel group BluSerena. Conergy will install the power plants at the group's five beach resorts.
The hotel chain will power up to three-quarters of its hotel rooms using solar electricity, thereby saving up to 78% on electricity costs, according to Conergy. The installations are planned for resorts in Apulia, Sicily, Sardinia and Calabria. Currently, three of these power stations are under construction.
