Solar plant to be built in Greece

Conergy is building its next 500 kilowatt solar power plant in Molai in the Greek province of Laconia, just a few kilometers south of the famous ancient city of Sparta on the Peloponnese peninsula.

This is the fifth Conergy installation to be announced in Greece since the beginning of the year. Conergy is the main contractor for the 20,000 square meter turnkey power plant for a local customer and private investor. The system supplier is responsible for the engineering and layout of the plant, along with the supply of the components and the construction.

Over 2,000 Conergy PowerPlus modules on Conergy SolarLinea mounting systems will generate 659,000 kilowatt hours of clean energy each year. 30 Conergy IPG 15T inverters will then feed this electricity into the local grid. In this way, the solar park will produce enough power to supply 187 households – around one-fifth of the population of Molai. At the same time, it will save on the production of around 336 tons of CO2 emissions each year.
