There are 16 photovoltaic plants in the territory of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina which sell power through the grid, portal Klix.ba reported. Solar power plants have proven to be an excellent project which can reduce electricity bills if used for personal purposes or which can generate profit if you sell the produced electricity, according to the article, republished by Sarajevo Times.
The first one was launched in March 2012 in Kalesija in the country’s northeast, built by Sadik Fatić and his son Selmir, owner of company Eko Energija d. o. o. It is installed on the roof of the town hall in Kalesija and its construction cost BAM 800,000 (EUR 410,000). Power is sent to the system of Elektroprivreda BiH d. d.(Electric Utility of BiH). The facility has the capacity of 12 kW and solar panels cover 1,200 square meters.
“We are satisfied with the work of the solar power plant, which generates between 130,000 and 150,000 kWh annually. So far, we have achieved production higher 30% than expected, thanks to the equipment of highest quality,” Selmir Fatić said. The solar power plant earns over EUR 56,000 per year. He expects total return on invested in less than five years, which means there will be profit, after EUR 510 for renting the roof. Fatić recommends everyone interested in such projects to build a solar power plant because there is no concession to be paid.
