Day4 Energy has now completed the second phase of the one megawatt Solar Farm Hufingen GmBH Project in Germany. The project, completed in two separate phases consists of an initial 500 kilowatts completed in early 2009, followed by an additional 450KW completed in December 2009. It was financed by by Umweltbank AG, Nurnberg, Germany.
Day4 Systems GmbH, a 100% German subsidiary of Day4 Energy Inc., Burnaby, Canada was responsible for design, electrical planning and project management, supported by BES GmbH, who was responsible for the actual installation of the system.
The project is built on an area that was previously a landfill site. The system has a dual purpose; in addition to providing a source of revenue from the German Government’s photovoltaic feed-in-tariff, the roof mounted system also redirects rain water away from the landfill area minimizing the amount of potentially contaminated water that leaves the site.
“This project is yet another example of Day4 Energy’s efforts to address the unique needs of our customers by providing turn-key photovoltaic solutions,” said George Rubin, president of Day4 Energy.
