EnBW AG said it plans to build Germany’s biggest solar park without subsidies, underscoring how falling costs are fueling green power investments in Europe’s largest economy

Germany’s fourth-biggest utility will build the 175-megawatt Weesow-Willmersdorf plant over 164 hectares (405 acres) in Brandenburg outside of Berlin, EnBW said on Wednesday. Its power will feed wholesale markets with enough electricity for about 50,000 homes.
