mp-tec Solar Power Plant

The 17-hectare installation with CIS modules offers aesthetic design and provides 1,500 households annually with solar energy.


mp-tec is a specialist in the development and implementation of solar PV, solar thermal, and mounting systems, based in Eberswalde, Germany. mp-tec also builds turn-key solar parks, and has been a manufacturer, distributor and project-based service provider since 2002. mp-tec also partners with specialist dealers, skilled craftsmen, planners, and investors in Europe. With 75 employees and a network of approximately 4,000 trade partners, mp-tec is the largest solar systems company in the former East German states.



In less than three months, mp-tec installed and connected five megawatts of Solar Frontier panels at the Technology and Business Park in Eberswalde, Germany to the grid . Used for the first time, a new single-foot assembly system allowed for quicker mounting of modules than conventional systems. Up to three rows of framed modules can be assembled in portrait mounting.


The Eberswalde installation is the first solar park using CIS thin-film modules from Solar Frontier in Brandenburg. The most convincing aspects of Solar Frontier’s CIS modules for mp-tec were their economic viability and high efficiency. Due to the uniform black appearance of the CIS modules the installation also integrates into the landscape better than other technologies.


The 17-hectare thin-film installation is expected to produce 4,845,000 kWh per year, generating enough energy for approximately 1,500 two-person households, saving up to 3,900 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
