Spanish Double: Conergy Solar Power Plants Totalling Over 2 MW Connected to the Grid

Investor relies on Conergy quality for two additional major projects in Andalusia.

Hamburg, Madrid September 28, 2012

Conergy is continuing its solar success story in Spain: Just a few months after the 1 megawatt capacity and thereby largest rooftop plant in the Basque Country, two additional large-scale power plants are being connected to the grid in the south of the Iberian Peninsula. The investor is once again relying on Conergy's outstanding quality and installing the high-performance components of the system supplier. The first plant with a total capacity of 1.8 MWp is located in Jerez de la Frontera on an industrial rooftop area of some 24,000 square metres. The second solar power plant, which has a capacity of 320 KWp, has been installed on an area measuring 8,000 square metres in the village of Segura de la Sierra in Jan Province.

The more than 9,000 Conergy PowerPlus modules of the two plants will be producing close to 3,000 megawatt hours of environmentally friendly solar power per year, which 9 Conergy IPG C central inverters will feed into the Andalusian grid. To ensure reliable monitoring, both installations are equipped with a Conergy VisionBox. The two solar power plants will thus produce more clean energy than the inhabitants of Segura de la Sierra need every year. And the environment in Andalusia will also benefit. Together, the two plants will prevent the emission of almost 850 tonnes of damaging CO2, corresponding to the emissions of around 12,000 cars on the approximately 460 kilometre long stretch of road right across Andalusia, which connects the two solar power plants.

"Sun-blessed Andalusia is a very attractive location for solar power plants and well on its way to achieving grid parity", said Luis Jimenez Gutierrez, Managing Director of Conergy Spain. "These two projects are another step down this path where product quality, know-how and services become more and more important. Conergy stands for quality and many years' experience – with large-scale free-field plants as well as industrial and private rooftop plants. This expertise makes us a reliable partner for all solar projects, on whom our customers can count."
