First TRITEC solar park in Germany: 2.2MW system in Klettgau to be connected to grid
At the end of the year, Swiss photovoltaic specialist TRITEC as the general contractor is set to connect for the first time an outdoor solar system in Germany to the grid. With an output of 2.134 MWp, the solar park will then supply the Klettgau municipality with over two million kilowatt hours of clean solar power per year.
After some 8 weeks of construction – at times in the most adverse weather conditions – the “Klettgau Solarpark” will be connected to the grid as scheduled on 23 December. The PV system is set up on three fields with a total area of 5.5 hectares on the former Erzingen gravel quarry in the municipality of Klettgau.
As the general contractor, TRITEC is responsible for the planning, design and implementation of the system. Key system components include 8712 STP 245s type solar modules from Suntech along with 66 PT 33 inverters from Sunways.
Investing in an efficient, high-output photovoltaic system means the municipality of Klettgau will cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 1,200 tons a year while supplying power to some 550 households.
