Conergy has announced the supply of modules to four solar farms for long-term partner and general contractor Solaer in the UK.
Three of the solar farms are located in the south west, producing enough electricity to power 3,200 homes, with two plants in Somerset (5.8MW and 2.2MW) and one in Devon (4MW). A 3.3MW solar farm in Buckinghamshire is expected to generate enough electricity to power another 800 homes.
The plants are among a number of solar farms Conergy is working on across the UK following a 5.3MW project again with Solaer in Cornwall last year.
All of the projects feature Conergy’s P-Series module, which the company said offers an attractive price/performance ratio, and has been popular with the UK’s fast-growing solar farm market.
Robert Goss, MD Conergy UK said: “Developers and investors in solar farms are looking for bankable technology and Conergy delivers for them with reliable modules and years of build experience. Solar farms, located in the right places, are a quick way of efficiently contributing to the UK energy mix, reducing the pressure from rising gas prices and the cost and time required to build new gas or nuclear plants.”
In January this year Conergy donated solar panels and a mounting frame for Willen Hospice in Milton Keynes, as well as helping the charity gain planning permission for the installation.
