German solar power plant produces power with Canadian solar modules

Munich, October 4, 2011 — Canadian Solar Inc., has supplied 636,000 solar modules for a solar energy complex in southern Brandenburg, Germany.

Canadian Solar provided 148 MW of the system's total 166 MW to its two partners, saferay and GP JOULE. A portion of the system's core output, about 78 MW, was implemented by saferay.

The system will be able to produce enough green energy for the usage needs of about 50,000 homes.

The Senftenberg II/III system was built on 200 hectares of the former Meuro surface mining plant in three months. The premises are property of the Agrargenossenschaft Grossraeschen eG coop. providing space for 330,000 crystalline solar modules.

The project's investment frame of nearly $200 million was provided by three German banks. Saferay holds two thirds of investments and operations.

The solar park development effort was initiated by Berlin-based project development company unlimited energy GmbH. Besides establishing the required legal framework, unlimited energy focused on environmental protection in the plant's design.
