    Gehrlicher Solar Connects 35MW Perleberg Solar Park to Grid

    Gehrlicher Solar AG successfully completed its Perleberg solar park in record time after just two and a half months of construction. Technical commissioning of the solar park was completed on time on June 30. The solar power system with 35MWp nominal capacity is located halfway between Hamburg and Berlin. It is expected to produce about 33 million kilowatt hours of environmentally friendly solar power annually, an amount sufficient to cover the needs of around 9,300 three-person households. Due to the solar park's high capacity, the company also built a separate expandable 110kV transformer station, which served to connect the solar park to the grid on August 23 and has been providing full power input reliably ever since. Compared to electricity generated from fossil fuels, starting immediately, the plant will save approximately 32,000 tons of CO2 annually.

    At today's creditor meeting in Dessau-Rosslau, the creditors of Q-Cells SE approved by a large majority the sale of the business operations to South Korean Hanwha.
