SENS LSG, a joint venture between Würzburg, Germany-- based Steag Solar Energy Solutions (SENS) and also its Austrian partner LSG has completed a solar plant with a peak capacity of 66 MW in Bulgaria. It is located in the municipality of Dalgo Post near Plovdiv.

More than 122,300 panels are mounted on trackers, enabling them to change their alignment as well as adhere to the setting of the sunlight, the firms claimed. Annual output is approximated at 100 GWh.

Following solar park project imagined at 50 MW

Bulgaria prepares to boost the share of energy from renewables in its electricity mix to 25% by the end of the decade, SENS pointed out. The building and construction of the farm started in March as well as currently it is connected to the grid. The joint venture mentioned that the center would certainly save 47,000 statistics lots of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

SENS LSG said it intends to start the construction of 50 MW in peak solar power capacity in Bulgaria in November.

EU climate target is video game changer for Bulgaria

"We acknowledged the potential of south-eastern Europe at an early stage. Yet yet, there has actually typically been an absence of political will to broaden solar energy. Thanks to the EU's binding climate target, we can now benefit from Bulgaria's climatic and eco-friendly potential and tackle the construction of huge solar farms," LSG Group's Managing Director Karl Göth claimed.

According to statistics from the International Renewable Energy Agency, Bulgaria had almost 1.2 GW in solar power installed at the end of last year.

SENS LSG was established in late 2020. Both firms are active in various other nations of the region, including Hungary. LSG, headquartered in Vienna, is taking part in the project for the largest battery storage system in Romania. SENS LSG is establishing solar power projects in Greece with a combined capacity of 480 MW.
