23 hectares of the 100-hectare Mosolf site in Kippenheim, Germany, are to be covered with photovoltaic modules that produce electricity, writes SWR aktuell. 7,500 of the 30,000 cars are also protected from hail.

30 million euros cost

The photovoltaic roof should cost 30 million euros. The plant is built by the company Mosolf. The Europapark in Rust is committed to buying 50 percent of the electricity. The electricity will be transported from Kippenheim to Rust, ten kilometers away, via substation networks. Laying a cable is still too expensive, writes the SWR. Around 25 million kilowatt hours of electricity are expected to be produced per year.
