Clearview Expands with 42 MWp Solar Park

Clearvise AG has expanded its renewable energy portfolio by acquiring the Wolfsgarten solar park, boasting an installed capacity of 42 MWp. This acquisition propels Clearvise's total operating portfolio to an impressive 316 MW output. With the commissioning already completed, the company anticipates earnings contributions as early as 2024, showcasing the efficiency of its project execution.

Clearvise’s Second Solar Project

Clearvise AG, a renewable energy independent power producer with a varied European portfolio of wind and photovoltaic facilities, declares the procurement of the Wolfsgarten solar park from ALTUS Renewables GmbH (ALTUS). This acquisition marks a successful expansion of Clearvise AG's operational generation capacity to 316 MW and underscores its ongoing commitment to achieving a balanced electricity output, split evenly between wind and solar energy sources.

ALTUS, a developer headquartered in Karlsruhe, planned and constructed the 42.7 MWp Wolfsgarten solar park, which commenced operations at the end of April 2024. The electricity generated from this facility is sold through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). This successful realisation further underscores Clearvise's commitment to advancing sustainable energy initiatives, particularly evidenced by their continued pursuit of Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) projects.

Following the Alsweiler II solar park, also developed by ALTUS with a capacity of 12.5 MWp, the Wolfsgarten solar park becomes the second project in Clearvise's operational generation portfolio to operate successfully without tariff subsidies, relying instead on private PPAs. Clearvise had previously announced the successful signing of another PPA for a French solar park project under construction by the end of March.

The Partnership Deal

Petra Leue-Bahns, CEO of Clearvise AG, highlights the success of the Wolfsgarten project as a testament to the trust they've placed in ALTUS's development expertise. She expresses gratitude for ALTUS's partnership and dedication, which ensured the park's timely completion before the intense summer months.

“Those that wait will get good rewards. A large-scale, intricate project such as Wolfsgarten demonstrates why we should have faith in ALTUS's development experience. We express our gratitude to our esteemed partner for their outstanding collaboration and unwavering dedication. Because of this, the park was able to open on time before the summer's high radiation months,” stated Leue-Bahns.

According to a report from EQS News, in 2021, Clearvise and ALTUS entered purchase agreements for the Wolfsgarten and Heiligenfelde solar parks as part of a diverse PV project portfolio. Due to market changes, adjustments were necessary, leading Clearvise to take over the Wolfsgarten project while ALTUS retained ownership of Heiligenfelde.
