The Government of Montenegro has issued urban planning and technical requirements for technical documentation for two large photovoltaic projects in the northern part of the country. One is for a 240 MW solar power plant in Nikšić, and the other is for the Vuča agrisolar park in Rožaje with a connection capacity of 123.6 MW.

Somsol, a company based in Podgorica, has obtained all the necessary opinions from relevant authorities for a future photovoltaic facility in Somina in Nikšić, Montenegro’s second-largest city. The government has approved the proposal for urban planning and technical requirements for technical documentation, which serves as the basis for the further development of the project.
