From development to operation
As a photovoltaic enterprise and project developer with a growing international presence, we have been consistently investing in renewable energies since 2013. Both in Germany and abroad, we focus on the development and construction of ground-mounted photovoltaic systems.
Our expertise has brought us to believe that solar energy is one of the most important renewable energy sources. Its potential is enormous. Investing in solar parks makes economic sense. We are part of a story of progress – making the energy transition possible.
The WIRCON Group currently has around 35 employees at our locations in Mannheim, Berlin and Saarbrücken.
WIRCON GmbH was founded in 2013. In 2019 the Hopp family acquired all shares in the company. With our highly qualified WIRCON team backed by this robust shareholder, a successful restructuring took place. In the process, our corporate strategy and a future-oriented approach were invigorated. In spring 2020, our WIRCON headquarters were relocated to Mannheim.
Today, WIRCON GmbH takes pride in its solid foundations and a well-stocked project pipeline. Our future focus lies primarily in Europe. As a company that calls the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region home, we will also implement a range of projects in this region and across wider Germany. With the climate and energy crisis becoming more serious, the construction of solar parks to generate renewable energy is more important to us than ever. Join us on the path to the future of energy generation. Together – for a secure and sustainable future.

Key facts and information
For investors, landowners and investors
Are you considering investing in a solar park as a municipality? As a medium-sized company, we firmly believe that sustainability goals and affordable electricity must be compatible. In addition, sustainability and biodiversity are becoming increasingly important for municipalities.
Do you own wasteland? This could be anything from landfill zones to industrial, military or mining wasteland. Or perhaps you have land alongside motorways or railway lines? Don't let these spaces go to waste any longer.
Do you have agriculturally low-yield land and want to make optimal, profitable use of it? Solar parks enable reliable income over 30 years.
Would you like your firm to be ESG-compliant, and sustainably oriented? We offer you the opportunity to make a socially responsible investment. Solar power makes it possible to generate electricity sustainably, thereby reducing CO2 emissions.
