Photon Energy grid-connects 2 more PV plants near Püspökladány
Photon Energy N.V. announced that Photon Energy Solutions HU Kft. - the groupʼs Hungarian subsidiary - has completed and grid-connected two PV power plants, with a combined capacity of 2.8 MWp, near Püspökladány.
In total, the company now owns and operates 10 power plants with a combined installed capacity of 14.1 MWp in this location.
The two new power plants extend over 3.6 hectares and are connected to the grid of E.ON Tiszántúli Áramhálózati Zrt. Together they are expected to generate around 4.1 GWh of clean electricity per year.
These latest additions expand the groupʼs current installed base in Hungary to 49.1 MWp, and its global proprietary portfolio of power plants to 74.7 MWp.
"We are thrilled to have finalized the commissioning of our largest cluster of utility-scale PV power plants in our Hungarian portfolio to date, having safely energized the last two of 10 power plants at our Püspökladány site well ahead of schedule. This is another major milestone for the entire team of Photon Energy. With these projects we have exceeded 100 MWp in global EPC services and expanded the installed base of Hungarian power plants in our proprietary portfolio to 49.1 MWp, taking us closer to the goal of 75 MWp by the end of 2021," said Georg Hotar, CEO of Photon Energy.
The hroup will operate the two new power plants through a pair of wholly-owned project companies, each of which possesses a METÁR license. These licenses entitle each power plant to a de facto feed-in tariff of HUF 33,360 per MWh. Both power plants are entitled to a maximum approved and supported production of approximately 29,955 MWh per license over a period of 15 years and five months. The total annual revenue of all ten power plants at the Püspökladány site is expected to be EUR 1.9 million.
The valuation model for the Groupʼs proprietary portfolio, in accordance with IAS 16, implies that other comprehensive income of approximately EUR 4 million will be recorded in the Groupʼs Q4 2020 Consolidated Income Statement in relation to the commissioning of all 10 power plants.
