Elektroprivreda Srbije envisages the construction of the Petka solar power plant, with a capacity of 9.95 MW, at the external tailings dump of the Ćirikovac coal mine near the settlement called Petka, according to the tendering documentation.

The Petka solar power plant will be located on the left side of the Požarevac-Kostolac road. The dumpsite where it will be located is 2.2 kilometers long and 1.2 kilometers wide, with a maximum height of 60 meters.
