Weisser Weg II

The second expansion stage of the solar power plant on the former waste disposal site at Weißer Weg, Chemnitz, has been realized and connected to the grid in May 2021.
The economic concept of this photovoltaic plant includes a tender award from the Federal Network Agency and a plant lease model for the local landfill operator AWVC.
In addition to an existing block heat and power plant, solar power is also to contribute to the residual waste treatment plant's own electricity supply.
With both expansion stages, the “solar landfill site” will have a total generator size of approx. 9 MWp.
With this project, the ENERGISTO team was able to set a further milestone by covering all relevant disciplines in the in-house project development.

for the local community

  • Sustainable and meaningful land conversion.

for the environment

  • Limit land consumption and produce clean energy. Substantial regional contribution to decentralized power supply from renewable energies.

…special feature of this project

  • By May 2021, meanwhile 4 landfill sites of the operator AWVC could be equipped with a total of approx. 16 MWp of photovoltaic capacity to foster the ecological subsequent use of these sites.
  • A true closed-loop model. Interaction of sealed landfill with surface use in the form of a PV system for the production of clean electricity. In addition, an integrated, proportional use of the energy for the residual waste treatment plant’s own electricity supply. A special benefit for all involved.
