Construction of the project was accomplished in two and half months with the technical commissioning taking place towards the end of June 2012; it was connected to the grid in August. A separate expandable 110kV transformer station was built considering the high capacity of the park.

The solar installation produces 33m kWh of energy per annum, meeting the needs of 93,000 households and reducing carbon emissions by 32,000 tons.

Commenting on the completion of the project Gehrlicher Solar CEO Klaus Gehrlicher thanked the policy makers at the City of Perleberg and District of Prignitz, the Perleberg building authority, the Brandenburg Land Association amongst others.

The solar park has been built on the site of the former military airport Perleberg spread over 90 hectares; it employed 144,144 modules manufactured by Yingli and 39 inverters by SMA.
