    Let the sun shine on our rooftops!

    Several plants have installed large numbers of solar panels in order to harvest clean energy.

    The Volkswagen Group already gets one third of its electricity consumption from regenerative sources.

    Take for example the Volkswagen brand. In January 2013 it brought on stream what was at the time the world’s largest solar power plant. The Volkswagen Chattanooga Solar Park generates a peak output of 9.5 MW and it remains the largest solar power plant operated by an automaker in the USA. Its approximately 33,600 solar panels are expected to yield around 13,100 MWh per annum, which would cover 13% of Chattanooga’s electricity requirements at full production capacity.
