The solar power plant will be located in Ronneburg is expected to begin commercial production in June 2012.

juwi CEO Fred Jung solar power is a central component of a comprehensive renewable energy supply.

"Without ground-mounted photovoltaic systems is the energy shift to a power supply that is made from 100 percent renewable energy, not possible," Jung said.
