EnBW Cuts The Ribbon On German Solar Farm


               EnBW has inaugurated a new solar park, a roughly 4MW plant in the district of Limburg-Weilburg. With 8,970 solar modules divided across three solar fields, the facility can generate around 4.5m kWh of solar power, enough to cover the annual electricity needs of around 1,500 households. The plant is situated by the A3 motorway near Bad Camberg and marks EnBW’s first solar park in the state of Hesse. The plan for the solar project was approved by the Bad Camberg council roughly a year ago. Michael Class, Head of Generation Portfolio Development at EnBW, said: “In order to make Germany somewhat less dependent on imports of fossil fuel sources, we must at least triple the scale-up of renewables with immediate effect. “To do this, we still need simpler and faster approval processes that are not only implementable in practice, but also actually implemented.” Minister for the Environment Priska Hinz stated: “We have a clear goal: The state wants to achieve climate neutrality by 2045. The further expansion of solar energy is an important stepping stone toward achieving this goal. “Besides the role played by solar energy in mitigating climate change, the war in Ukraine makes it very clear that we must end our reliance on fossil fuel sources even more quickly. Between 10,000 and 15,000 hectares of land for large-scale PV power plants are required across the entire state in order to bring about the urgently needed energy transition. Local authorities must make suitable space available for this purpose as part of the land-use planning process.”
