Selterhof solar farm
Selterhof, a former military site covering 45 hectares, was used for 40 years until 1994 as a telecommunications centre and depot. Before Energiequelle GmbH was able to build a solar farm on the site, its first task was to dismantle 85 buildings and a fuelling station and restore the area to its original natural state in an ecofriendly way. Construction of the solar farm began in 2008. A total of 9844 photovoltaic modules mounted on 284 trackers now produce a total power capacity of 2.25 MWp. Annual output thus amounts to 2748 MWh, enough to cover the annual power requirements of around 600 four-person households.
