The biggest solar plant in Serbia to become operational next month

The biggest solar plant in Serbia built so far will be opened in Central Serbia (near Lapovo) and it is worth EUR 8.9 million.

According to the director of the companies Delasol and MT-Komex, which funded the construction of this plant, Miloš Kostić, the plant will start delivering electricity in March.

“The plant spans 12.5 hectares and will consist of 17,980 solar panels. The plant’s capacity will be 11.7MW. When we translate this into how much electrical energy the power plant will produce annually, it will be sufficient for the supply of 2,100 houses locally, for a whole year,” Kostić added

He also pointed out that insolation in Serbia was 30-40% higher than in Germany, a country considered one of the European leaders in the production of electricity from solar power. Kostić believes that the potential for the construction of solar capacities in Serbia is nowhere close to being fully utilized.

“Our plan is to build another four power plants in the next two years. One of them will also be located in Lapovo, on the neighbouring land plot. Another two power plants, which are in development, will be located in Vojvodina, and the final one we plan to build will be located in Vranje,” he added.

The Serbian government aims to have at least 40% of the energy produced from renewable sources by 2040. At the same time, experts estimate that Serbia should generate at least 5GW from renewable sources by 2030.

In the past few months, individuals and companies have installed around 360 rooftop photovoltaic power plants, with a total power of 5.7MW, and according to the announcements from the Ministry of Mining and Energy, the immediate plan is to install more photovoltaic power plants of 100MW.
