The park is the first project to be undertaken by juwi in Bulgaria, but the company has said there are "further projects in the pipeline".
"The prospects for Bulgaria are promising. In the last year wind energy was developed, now Bulgarians discover solar power," commented Lars Falck, managing director juwi Solar. "We have to see whether the feed-in tariff for solar energy is maintained and whether a tariff fixation without variation for existing plants is implemented. This would contribute to inspiring investors for Bulgaria and to accomplishing the goal for the development of the renewable energies."
With 15,444 crystalline Yingli modules with an output of 3.6 MW, 4.3 million kilowatt-hours can be produced, explained the company. It said that the park has been delivering clean energy to 1,300 households since the end of August.
Additionally, juwi has said that it is currently in the process of installing Slovakias biggest PV park. Located close to Kosihy, the four MW installation is expected to produce approx. 4.2 million kilowatt-hours annually, with 18,144 crystalline modules provided by Canadian Solar.
When completed, it will reportedly cover an area of 10 hectares and supply energy to 1,400 Slovakian households. The company said it expects the plant to be connected to the grid by the beginning of November. It added that it will be pursuing other projects in the region, although it did not provide specifics.
"We see great potential in Eastern Europe and will intensify our investments and create new jobs," continued Falck. "We are glad that a growing number of countries is providing basic conditions for renewables."
