Berlin-based solar energy developer ib vogt GmbH and subsidiary vogt solar said 80 megawatts of solar power projects in the UK were commissioned in the first quarter of 2014. The company said the projects qualified for application for the 1.6 ROCs (Renewable Obligation Certificate) credit rate. The projects include the 20.5 MW Newlands Farm/Fareham project in Hampshire, the 18.7 MW Wix Lodge project in Essex and the 11.8 MW Derriton Fields plant in Devon. The company also commissioned three other solar plants located in Kent.
Institutional investors have bought all six projects, according to Solar Server.
"Our solar farms are highly optimized, incorporating state-of-the-art technology and top quality components," Anton Milner, managing director of ib vogt GmbH, said in a statement. "The plants are engineered, built and operated by our dedicated, professional teams. The standards we apply consistently result in high over-performance of our solar farms in both electricity generation and technical operating parameters, such as performance ratio and availability."
Despite encountering problems with the winter weather, the company said the plants were finished on schedule March 31.
