Volkswagen and Phoenix Solar have completed a 9.5 MW solar installation at Volkswagen's manufacturing facility in Chattanooga, Tenn.

The solar park occupies 33 acres - half of the 66-acre land parcel adjacent to the company's manufacturing plant. It contains 33,600 solar modules from JA Solar designed to produce 13.1 GWh of electricity annually. Volkswagen will consume 100% of the electricity

Unirac provided the racking system, and SMA supplied 10 central inverters. The power produced by the array is expected to meet 12.5% of the energy needs of Volkswagen's Chattanooga manufacturing plant during full production and 100% during non-production periods.

Silicon Ranch will own the solar park and sell the electricity to Volkswagen under a 20-year power purchase agreement. Phoenix Solar Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Phoenix Solar AG, provided engineering, procurement and construction services.
