    LEAG gets approval for 25 MWp solar project in eastern Germany

    March 15, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      March 15 (Renewables Now) - Energy company Lausitz Energie Bergbau AG (LEAG) has received approval to build a 24.8-MWp solar park in eastern Germany's Upper Lusatia region and expects to break the ground on the project in September.

      The green light was granted by the municipal council of the Boxberg municipality in the federal state of Saxony where the solar plant will be located, LEAG said on Tuesday.

      The facility will be built by LEAG's partner EP New Energies GmbH (EPNE) north of the district of Nochten. The building application was submitted about a week ago.

      The energy company, which still operates four opencast mines in the region, expects the Boxberg PV park to go online in the first half of 2024 and feed up to 26,000 MWh of green electricity into the grid annually.

      The project is part of LEAG's target="_blank">GigawattFactory which was unveiled last September. The goal of the EUR-10-billion (USD 10.73bn) initiative is to install 7 GW of renewable energy capacity in Lusatia by 2030 and thus turn the mining region into a green powerhouse.

      (EUR 1 = USD 1.074)
