The city of Zajecar in Serbia is seeking public opinion for solar power capacity of around 150 MW to come up in the region after it was proposed by a Belgrade based company Solarina, reported local business news portal eKapija.
This capacity is planned to be divided in the form of 3 projects located between the villages of Salas, Dubocane and Mala Jasikova covering some 1,700 hectares. Power generated by the plants will be connected to the grid of Serbian national transmission system operator Elektromreza Srbije (EMS).
It is planned to be located on privately owned agricultural land which is mostly unsuitable for the purpose. Solarina has proposed to allow for the area beneath the modules deployed to be used for agricultural purposes, including for grazing by livestock.
Comments for this public consultation will be accepted till March 14, 2022. Further details can be availed from the city administration’s website.
Solarina is a subsidiary of renewable energy company CWP Global that’s part of the massive 26 GW wind and solar strong Asian Renewable Energy Hub in Australia (see 26 GW Wind-Solar Complex In Australia In Trouble). According to CWP Global, on completion, the 150 MW Solarina Solar Park will be the largest solar plant in Serbia.
Under its Draft Program of Economic Reforms 2022-2024, the Serbian Ministry of Finance plans for the country to install 11.3 GW worth of solar and wind power capacity by 2024 (see Serbia Aims For 11.3 GW Solar & Wind By 2024).
