Norway-based renewable energy company Statkraft says it has begun construction on its first solar park. The power plant is being constructed in the Latina region of Italy, 60 km south of Rome, and it will be completed by the end of this year.
The solar power plant will have an installed capacity of 3.3 MW and generate 4.5 million kWh annually. The 15,700 solar panels at the plant will cover an area just under 96,000 square meters. Costs will total about 13 million euros.
