PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN ITALY
With 5.7 MW of installed capacity, Italy is the most important country in the PV – Invest Group’s portfolio. PV – Invest acquired its first Italian power plant, Lequile II, in 2009. Good solar radiation levels combined with high feed-in tariffs form the basis for making Italy attractive as a photovoltaic location. Government feed-in tariffs for 20 years were ideal for PV – Invest to fulfil its mission: sustainable profitable investment.
Given the rapid development of PV capacities within a short space of time, Italy opted to stop the feed-in tariff subsidies for new plants a few years ago. This led to an increase in the value of existing PV power plants in Italy.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN GERMANY
We at PV – Invest built our first German photovoltaic power plant with a capacity of 3.6 MW in Oberempfenbach, Bavaria in 2015. Other PV power plants in Germany will follow.
Despite no longer being the global market leader, Germany is still by far the largest PV market in Europe. Even if the sunshine levels are not comparable with Italy’s, Germany still provides the required stability in the country portfolio. Subsidised feed-in tariffs for 20 years enable the corporate strategy to be given direction in the long term.
PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN SLOVENIA
Slovenia with its location on the southern end of the Alps has excellent conditions for photovoltaic power plants. The southern part of the country in particular enjoys good levels of sunshine. Feed-in tariffs were agreed for 15 years. New feed-in tariffs will no longer be granted, which is why PV – Invest acquires existing photovoltaic power plants with still applicable tariffs.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN FRANCE
Even if France not one of our core countries, PV – Invest will continue to build smaller photovoltaic power plants in France. The current feed-in tariffs enable PV plants to be operated profitably.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN SPAIN
PV – Invest has also been operating in Spain since the end of 2013. Since Spanish green electricity subsidies have been cut, making new projects practically uneconomical, only investment in existing plants with guaranteed feed-in tariffs is currently viable in Spain. Given that the solar electricity revenue achievable in southern European countries is very high, PV – Invest still keeps close track of developments in Spain for photovoltaic sites.
Its southern location provides the country with excellent conditions for solar electricity generation. At up to 1,650 kWh capacity per installed kWp, the solar electricity that can be generated annually ranks among the highest in Europe.

PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS IN BULGARIA
In Bulgaria, PV – Invest operates two photovoltaic power plants with an output of 5.5 MW. Bulgaria had a narrow time frame for attractive investments in PV power plants, an opportunity PV – Invest took advantage of in building and operating these two facilities.

Community Investment PV Power Plants
PV – Invest also offers the model of community investment in the group. This enables members of the community to invest in solar facilities, even with small amounts, and become co-owners of a PV power plant themselves.
