Solar power in Czech Republic

Electricity is a key driver of economic stability so it is crucial to have access to clean and sustainable sources of energy. Owing to rising concerns for climate change and GHG emissions, the Czech Republic's government is anticipated to raise its share of clean energy. In 2019, the country had a total capacity factor of 2071 MW, generating approximately 2.3 TWh of power. Renewable sources of energy account for roughly 12 percent of total electricity in the country. With a renewable energy contribution of about 15 percent in 2019, the Czech Republic is expected to raise the energy share to almost 22% by end of 2030. Furthermore, it is predicted that sustainable energy production would rise to nearly 230 PJ by 2030, providing a way for the solar industry to thrive in the coming years.

The Vepřek Solar Park

The plant is located near Vepek village, which is part of the Nová Ves municipality, some 30 kilometers north of Prague. The construction of the project began started in October 2009, and it officially began operation in September 2010.

The plant's capacity is 35 megawatt, which should be enough to power 10000 homes in the Czech Republic. 186,960 PhonoSolar 185 and 190 Wp solar panels were used in the unit's construction. The entire complex, which consists of 26 blocks, covers an area of 82.5 acres.

The plant is owned by Decci a.s. A total cost of almost CZK 2.7 billion was invested for the project completion (around 140 million USD).

Ralsko Solar Park

It is the biggest solar station in the country and by 2012 ranked among the world's top 50 PV plants.  The plant is comprised of 5 sections, each with a capacity of 12.869, 14.269, 4.517, and 6.614 megawatts with a total capacity of 38.3 MW. This capacity is enough to power ten thousand homes. It was constructed on the site of a former military base.

Ševětín Solar Park

The plant is situated15 kilometers northeast of Ceské Budjovice in the South Bohemian Region. This place is among the most favorable locations to generate electricity using solar power attributed to its natural parameters. The total annual global radiation of this region is 3.8 thousand MJ/m2 on average.

The plant, with a capacity of 29.9 megawatts is expected to provide enough power to meet the electricity needs of about 8 thousand families in south Bohemia on a yearly basis. The major part of the construction was carried out in 2010 and the plant was completed by the end of the year.
