Danish utility Hofor today announced a project to install 180 MW of photovoltaic (PV) panels on land owned by the Soro Academy Foundation on the island of Zealand.
The company will develop and own the solar park. It can be up and running in 2024, at the earliest, becoming one of the largest in Denmark.
Hofor and the foundation are now applying for environmental and other permits. They will work with Energinet.dk for the grid connection plan and realisation.
The utility estimates that the solar farm, located between Soro and Ringsted, will be producing enough electricity each year to meet the demand of some 50,000 households.
