“Custom-made solar park for energy cooperatives”

IBC Solar

Photovoltaics specialist IBC Solar is developing a solar park tailored to the needs and possibilities of energy cooperatives, thereby adapting to changes brought on by the reform of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG). Solar PV parks with a capacity of up to 750 kilowatts will continue to be exempt from the auction system and qualify for the set feed-in tariffs. In a press release, the company says that its goal by building small parks is to enable energy cooperatives to better participate in the Energiewende. IBC Solar will take on the complete project development and carry all costs and risks involved until the construction is completed. The park will then be offered exclusively to the cooperative.
