Serbian Ministry of Mining and Energy said that the total capacity of rooftop photovoltaic panels installed by the prosumers in the past six months amounted to 5.17 MW, following the adoption of the new RES Law which promulgates the installation of solar panels on residential and commercial buildings.

The statement from the Ministry said that the increase is a result of the simplified procedure for installing solar panels and the recognition of the benefits which the status of prosumer introduced by the law in 2021 brings to the citizens and small businesses.

In addition, electricity distribution system operator Elektrodistribucije Srbije is currently processing some 700 applications for the connection of prosumers to the distribution network, with combined installed capacity of 102.1 MW.

Before the new RES law, total installed capacity in solar energy in Serbia was 11 MW and now it has increased to 16.17 MW.
