In the village of Gjurgjevik i Madh / Veliki Đurđević in Klina municipality, the Ministry of Economic Development (MED), Kosovo* Energy Distribution Services (KEDS), Energy Regulatory Office (ERO) and Slovenian company Rudis d. o. o. Trbovlje have commissioned the first electrical plant that generates energy from the solar panels.

The investment was made by Rudis, with the support of KEDS, especially for the adaptation. The system has a capacity of 102 kW, which began generation in March. The investor’s aim is to triple the capacity very fast. 

„Such foreign investment is good news for Kosova. It shows also our commitment to have alternative electrical energy. A lot of work is done before reaching up to this day by all stakeholders involved, such as MED, KEDS, ERO and Rudis. All the accords have been found and the time came when it is being commissioned,” said George Karagutoff, general director of KEDS.

„Our goal is to have 25% of power generation from renewable energy by 2020. Part of it is also this solar park. This sight is very rarely seen in our region,” said the minister of economic development Blerand Stavileci.
