The government’s provisional directive on renewables led to increased interest in this segment recently, and a few years ago entrepreneur Azem Bujak and his Bahen gradnja d. o. o. from Sarajevo built the first solar power facility in eastern Bosnia near Goražde, Al Jazeera reports. The investment of BAM 500,000 (EUR 255,650) was implemented in his home village of Bujaci, where the generated electricity supplies up to 80 households since May of 2013.

Bujak bought land at a selected position in the nearby village of Rešetnica and started an even larger project on 11,500 square metres. The power plant worth EUR 1.53 million will have the capacity of 1 GWh a year in its 3,200 panels, he said and added the investment could pay out within eight years.

Prime minister of Bosna-Podrinje Canton Goražde Emir Oković and the region’s minister of economy Esed Radeljaš visited the site in early November.
