In the second half of 2010, the ČEZ Group commissioned a modern photovoltaic installation in Mimoň.
The Mimoň photovoltaic installation is located in the territory of the Liberec Region some 15 km southeast of Česká Lípa. The average yearly sum of global radiation amounts to up to 3,800 MJ/m2 here and the conditions are therefore suitable to generate electricity from solar radiation. In addition, the use of the premises also seems to be optimum as this was a former military area, which would hardly find an alternative use. Moreover, by decontaminating related areas currently used for photovoltaic installations and by increasing their value, wider possibilities for the development of the entire area are opening up.
The installation with a 17.494 MW output is expected to generate an amount of electricity that would cover the consumption of some 4.500 households on the border of Central and Northern Bohemia.
The construction itself was carried out during most part of 2010. Carriers of polycrystalline panels are fixed to bearing piles fixed in the ground.
