German PV group Conergy says it has secured orders for two rooftop installations in Spain totalling 3.3GW.
Both orders are from Spanish energy firm Prosolia.
One is for a 1.8MW on the warehouse of a German logistics company in Sesena, about 80km south of
Madrid. The other is for a 1.5MW installation on the roof of grocery wholesaler
Mercatenerife in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, in the Canary Islands.
“Conergy has a leading
market position on the Canaries,” says Conergy Spain head Luis Jiménez
Gutierrez. “Both rooftop projects being built now still receive a feed-in
tariff [FIT], but we’re prepared well for the time after the FIT: solar
power is competitive both on the Canaries and on Spain’s mainland.”
Since last autumn, the Hamburg
company has built 14 PV projects in Spain without FIT support.
