The project is worth 189 million euros and it is expected to be put into operation by the end of 2018. The project will be financed through loans totaling 142 million euros, provided by Erste Bank Serbia, Erste Group AG in cooperation with German Export Credit Agency Euler-Hermes and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), while the remaining funds will be provided by Enlight Renewable Energy.

The project for the construction of Kovacica wind farm was previously developed by Electrawinds Kwind, a special purpose vehicle established for the purpose of the construction of this wind farm, owned by local company Solaveris Limited and Israeli Enlight Renewable Energy.
