City authorities in Tuzla have issued an initial consent for the construction of a solar power complex of about 36 MW, called Deling Invest 1. Tuzla’s economy relies heavily on the local thermal power plant and coal mines, but this renewable energy project is yet another indicator that the local authorities are willing to work on decarbonization.

The Deling Invest 1 solar complex, spanning 24 hectares, will consist of six fields of solar panels, with 12 transformer stations. Its projected annual electricity output is some 40 GWh.

The project is valued at EUR 30.6 million. The investor is Tuzla-based real estate developer Deling Invest.

The solar park will improve the city’s energy efficiency and reduce emissions, according to a statement from the city administration. “The City of Tuzla is committed to the further development of renewable energy sources and will continue to support initiatives that help reduce pollution and preserve our environment,” the statement reads.

EPBiH also plans a solar power plant in Tuzla, of 56 MW

Another project in Tuzla is for a 56 MW photovoltaic facility at the site of an ash and slag dump of the local coal-fired power plant. It has been announced by state-owned energy utility Elektroprivreda Bosne i Hercegovine (EPBiH) as part of its decarbonization plan.

EPBiH also intends to build a 450 MW unit at the Tuzla thermal power plant, but the project has been stalled due to problems with the contractor and a dispute over the legality of the state aid package.
