"We are getting a good deal closer to our goal of being climate-neutral in the Düren district by 2035," said District Administrator Wolfgang Spelthahn (CDU) according to the announcement. In the future, the solar power will also be used to produce hydrogen, which in turn will be used in buses and trains. Five hydrogen-powered buses are already in operation in the Düren district, and the first trains are to follow. "We also want to set a sign of hope with our new solar park - we show that it is possible and that it works to use renewable energies," Spelthahn continued.
