Solar-electric Installation for Sandra/Alexanderhausen

According to "Opinia Timişoarei" dated 23 November 2011, the Austrian firm "10hoch4 Energiesysteme GmbH has reached an agreement with the local administration to invest about 7 million euros in the construction of a photovoltaic installation in Sandra/Alexanderhausen.

The photovoltaic park will be built on an area of 7 hectares, at the exit of Şandra toward Uihei/Neusiedel, on the left side of the road.

The panels with photovoltaic cells installed here are expected to produce approximately 2 MW of electric power from direct solar radiation, to be supplied directly to the national energy system (SEN).
