Solarpark Meuro is a 166 MW solar park located in Meuro and Schipkau, Germany, and was built on an old lignite mine.[1] It is Germany's largest solar park,[2][3][4] and was named POWER-GEN International solar project of the year in 2012.[5]

The system uses CSI modules stringed to REFUsol 20k String inverters. It is also the first solarpark which uses 690VAC gridvoltage for some of REFUsol 333k HV central inverters.
