CWP plans to build a solar park “Solarina” in the area of the municipality of Zaječar with a maximum installed capacity of up to 150 MW. The beginning of the operational period is planned for the beginning of 2025.
The calculated expected annual production of the entire solar park is about 270 GWh, which is enough energy to supply more than 65,000 households with solar energy.
Solar energy produced in the solar park will have a great impact on reducing air pollution in the country and significantly contribute to the Republic of Serbia in achieving its energy goals when it comes to the share of total electricity from renewable energy sources. The production of electricity in the Solarina solar park will lead to an annual reduction of 187,650 tons of CO2 emissions in Serbia.
In addition to the positive impact on the environment, the socio-economic impact of the project will be very significant for the municipality, taking into account the fact that a significant part of the investment will be directed to the local community. This includes but is not limited to investments in: the purchase of land for the construction of the solar park, roads and transmission lines, sports, cultural and educational projects, as well as cooperation with local suppliers from various production and service industries.
The solar power plant is connected to the electric power system of Serbia in the city of Bor, to which a 17 km long transmission line with a voltage level of 110 kV will be built for the needs of the project. In order to make the most of the power of the sun, the construction of the power plant will use panels that have the ability to track the path of the sun (single axis trackers) and two-sided oriented solar panels. This advanced technical solution will contribute to the long-term efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the project.
In the realization of the project, CWP will be guided by the highest global and European standards, in order to contribute in the best possible way to the accelerated development of the municipality of Zaječar.
