Around 40,000 Canadian Solar modules were installed on an area spanning 153,000sq m.

The PV system installation supplies electricity for about 2,000 homes in Dreieich.

FES project manager Florian Benten said, "With a solar project of this size the smooth implementation and installation of high performance quality modules is essential. Having chosen the right partners, we accomplished installation and grid connection by the end of 2011."

Frankfurter Entsorgungs- und Service acted as the project contractor, while Sinusstrom oversaw onsite construction.

The solar park is operated by the RMS Rhein-Main Solarpark, a joint subsidiary of the Stadtwerke Dreieich and the FES.

The project allocated 25% of the modules for use as a public participation solar park, administered by the Solar Initiative Marburg e.V.
