Solar power in Bulgaria

Summary

Solar potential in Bulgaria

Solar power in Bulgaria has expanded by 100 megawatts (MW) in 2011. A 16.2 MW solar power plant in Zdravetz, Bulgaria was expected to be completed in June 2012, with power being sold for $0.30/kWh in a fixed rate 20 year power purchase agreement.[1]

Since then, however, new installations have nearly come to a halt with only about 12 MW of additional capacity installed during 2013 and 2014.
