The solar PV rooftop system, which has an output of around 17 kWp, should produce around 15.7 MWh of energy. The installation of the system is planned for the middle of April.
The zoo will be compensated with around €0.43/kWh under the Czech ‘green bonus’ law.
“In several respects, the solar system at Prague Zoo is a beacon project,” explains Gerhard Travnicek, head of IBC SOLAR in the Czech Republic. “Visitors will be able to see the advantages of solar electricity for themselves every day: It is emission-free, noiseless and harmless to both visitors and animals. Through this project, we want to promote German solar technology with dena in the Czech Republic.”
The dena Solar Roofs Programme is implemented by the German Energy Agency within the Renewable Energy Export Initiative, and co-financed by the German Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). The goal is to support German companies in the renewable energy industry through active development of foreign projects and in their export activities.
