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.
