German utility EnBW has signed off on the investment for a 180-megawatt subsidy-free solar farm. As well as becoming Germany’s largest solar farm, EnBW says it will be the first major unsubsidized solar project in the country.

Work on the Weesow-Willmersdorf plant, in the state of Brandenburg, will begin at the start of next year. The company expects commissioning to take place before the end of 2020.

EnBW CTO Hans-Josef Zimmer said he was confident in the project’s economics without subsidies, but cautioned that it, and future projects, would require priority dispatch rules to remain viable.
