One photovoltaic facility will be installed in Bujoreni commune and the second in Balcesti’s industrial park next year. The two power plants will thus produce electricity for companies that will invest there, Agerpres informs.
“It is green energy and I am convinced that this investment will galvanize the real-estate sector. Based on the talks with the company that will make this investment, we have the guarantee that street lighting and the lighting of public institutions, mayoralty, schools, clinics will be ensured. So it is an extremely useful investment,” Bujoreni’s mayor Alexandru Rosu stated, Energy World magazine reports.
In Balcesti, the photovoltaic power plant that will be built inside the industrial park will offer electricity to the other companies that will invest in the area. “This was one of the arguments of the investor that will build on one hectare of this park. It will be ready next year. At any rate, natural gas supply will be brought to the park in the spring, too,” mayor Ion Curelaru stated, citing the importance and proximity of the Craiova–Balş–Balcesti triangle and the possibility of auto parts companies coming.
Vâlcea County currently has three operational photovoltaic power plants – Horezu, Şirineasa and Mihăeşti – and four others in various stages of construction.
