Largest solar power plant in Croatia opens 

The largest commercial solar power plant in Croatia was opened on Friday in the northern Dalmatian town of Obrovac near Zadar.

With an annual electricity production of around 11.3 million kWh, the Obrovac power plant generate electricity for three and a half thousand households. 

Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković was at the inauguration of the new solar power plant and expressed satisfaction that the solar power plant was built in the area of the former alumina factory, thanks to an arrangement between the city of Obrovac and electric power company HEP.

He emphasised the importance of adapting to new times and energy strategy, with a focus on renewable energy sources. 

“By building a solar power plant, we are sending a transformative message of adaptation to the new era and, of course, adapting to the energy strategy of the Republic of Croatia in the largest possible use of renewable energy sources. In the great crisis that we went through together, HEP had a significant role and enabled the government to make decisions such as limiting the price of electricity for citizens and the economy,” the PM said.

The power plant in Obrovac is one of four solar plants that will be put into operation this year, the next one is in Međimurje, SE Donja Dubrava, with a capacity of 9.9 MW, which will also be the largest solar power plant in Croatia.
