Slovenian hydropower producer Dravske Elektrarne Maribor (DEM), a subsidiary of state-owned electricity producer HSE, announced that it will launch the construction of a solar project worth 2 million euros next week.

According to the statement from the company, some 6,000 solar panels are to be installed for a total output of some 2.7 MW, which are expected to produce some 3,000 MWh of electricity per year.

The solar power plant will be located on the left bank of a discharge water canal at Slovenia’s largest hydro power plant – Zlatolicje, in the northeastern part of the country.

The solar plant is part of a broader project for a power plant with total installed capacity of some 30 MW and expected annual electricity production of 37,000 MWh that will be built at HPP Zlatolicje in the next few years.
