For the purpose of building new solar power plants, Bosnian state-owned power utility EPBiH has launched a public call to all interested municipalities, companies and individuals for the expressing of interest for the lease of land

According to notice, the lease of construction land or other type of land that could be transferred to construction land, should be to a minimum of 25 years. Land offered by municipalities must have a minimum area of 100,000 square meters, while for companies and individuals the minimum is 50,000 square meters. Locations with higher number of annual sunny days will have an advantage.

The deadline for the expression of interest is 31 December 2021.

Last week, Ajla Merzic from EPBiH’s development department said that the company will build a solar power plant on the location of the existing Podvelezje wind farm, while it also plans to develop a number of solar power plants at the locations of its coalmines, which should be closed in the future, around Tuzla and Kakanj TPPs.
