Chinese companies start construction on two MW solar project in Bulgaria


Rumen Christov, manager of the Bulgarian company Sunservice said that construction of the two megawatt (MW) solar power plant is scheduled to be finished this August, reports the Xinhua News Agency.

"We are very satisfied because the partnership with the Chinese companies is going very well and the town government has invested USD$7 million in the clean energy project," Mr. Christov told Xinhua.

The companies – Polar Photovoltaics and Wiscom – are said to be able to install between 1,300 and 1,500 solar panels a day.

Jim Su, chief marketing officer of Polar Photovoltaics, said the plant, with a designed life span of 25 years, will generate 2,500 MWh of electricity a year, which is “more than enough” to meet the needs of Ihtiman.
