The ground-mounted solar power system has a peak power capacity of 34MW, and is intended to produce yearly about 32.7 million kWh of solar power.

This amount is sufficient to cover the needs of around 9,300 three-person households.

The solar park will rise on a total of 87 hectares, encompassing the previous military airport of Perleberg in Brandenburg, halfway between Hamburg and Berlin. In the months to come, Gehrlicher Solar will build up 62 hectares of this area with substructures, solar modules, and inverters.

The rest of the area will serve as what is called compensation areas; here meadow breeding grounds in particular will be created.

Connection of the solar park to the power grid is planned for May 2012.

Compared with energy created by fossil fuels, the plant will save approximately 32,000 tons of CO2 yearly.
