Solarfields – producer of renewable energy – and MOJO – organizer of large-scale events – will start realizing the world's largest solar carport in November this year. The solar park will be built in the Lowlands car park and will cover an area of 35 hectares. The solar carport will be operational in May 2021 and consists of 90,000 solar panels producing around 35,000,000 kWh of electricity annually.
