European Energy’s 101MW Kvosted solar farm, located in western Denmark, is now commissioned with grid connection, thereby supplying electricity to 22,000 households.

The facility, built in an area once used to mine gravel, also has a biodiversity feature with a 54,000 plants laid around the farm’s perimeter.

Development began in 2019, with the first photovoltaic modules installed in August this year.

”Solar Park Kvosted exemplifies how fine cooperation among local communities, municipalities and power companies such as ourselves can contribute to the green transition,” says European Enery Country Manager for Denmark in a press statement.

By the end of 2022, the company will have installed domestic renewable energy projects with combined capacity beyond 500MW.
