Solar Provider Group, a solar power project developer headquartered in Ontario, Canada, with offices in the United States, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Germany, is planning an agri-photovoltaic plant in Apenburg-Winterfeld (Saxony-Anhalt, Germany). According to a report by Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk (MDR), it will have a capacity of 20 megawatts, making it the largest of its kind in Germany, where such plants have only been built on a small scale to date. The Apenburg municipal council voted in favor of the project in mid-April.
The solar power plant is to be built on a total of 34 hectares of agricultural land. According to initial descriptions, the plant is planned as a conventional construction with single-axis tracking modules. The simultaneous agricultural use of the land is made possible by an unusually large distance of up to 14 meters between the module rows.
