The energy group EnBW is building the largest solar park to date in the Tuttlingen district Baden-Wuerttemberg . According to the energy supplier, the more than 32,000 solar modules on 15 hectares in the municipality of Emmingen-Liptingen will generate enough electricity to cover the needs of around 5,800 households.

'With the environmentally friendly electricity, around 12,750 tons of carbon dioxide can be avoided' , said the Karlsruhe provider. Under the modules should be a green space for Animals develop. The plan is for the solar park to be connected to the grid by the end of this year.

Solar project was realized quickly

'It is pleasing that the development period of around two years can be regarded as very short in the current environment' , said the EnBW project manager Tim Morath at the groundbreaking according to the announcement. 'Despite all the complexity, it shows that if the project developer, owner, municipality and district office pull together, the projects can progress quickly.'

According to its own statements, EnBW will invest around four billion euros in the expansion of wind and solar energy between 2021 and 2025. Installed capacity from renewable energies is expected to account for half of the energy company's total portfolio by 2025. In addition, EnBW wants to halve its CO₂ emissions by 2030 and become climate-neutral by 2035.
