The Lauingen Energy Park is a 25.7-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic power station, located in Bavarian Swabia, Germany. It covers an area of 63 hectares (155.7 acres) and was commissioned in June 2010.[2]

The project was built in three phases:

  • The 10.0 MW Helmeringen 1 (already commissioned in 2009)
  • The 9.4 MW Helmeringen 2
  • The 6.3 MW Helmeringen 3 (built and commissioned in 2010)

The largest solar power station in Swabia was built by the German company Gehrlicher Solar and features the following key figures:[2]
