Europe’s Largest Solar Power Park to Open This Year

QUICK NEWS: German solar PV firm Q-Cells has announced that one of its projects, which will be the largest solar power park in Europe, will be completed and sending electricity to about 22,500 Germans near Berlin by the end of 2011.

The solar park is a 91-MW facility with 383,000 solar modules and is located on what was once the Brandenburg-Briest airbase. (Makes me think of this wonderful guest/reader post from last month: Cost of War.. Spent on Solar Power Instead.)

The 383,000 solar modules will be installed on three sites on the former airbase.

Q-Cells started producing silicon solar cells in the first half year of 2001. It had 19 employees at that time. It now employs over 2,000. The company’s head office is in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany.
