Corabia Solar Park, a large thin-film photovoltaic (PV) power system, is built on a 45 ha plot of land near the Corabia commune in Romania. The solar park is a 7-megawatt solar power system using a number of 28,602 solar pannels of 245 Wp each[1] of state-of-the-art thin film technology, and was completed in December 2012.[needs update][2][3] The solar park is expected to supply 8,500 MWh of electricity per year.[4] Construction began in March 2012 and was completed in December 2012.

The installation is located in the Olt County in southern Romania. The investment cost for the Corabia solar park is €21 million.[3]
