Solar park to be built near Sfantu Ghorghe
The Local Council of the city of central Sfantu Gheorghe on Wednesday approved the award of a 4-ha plot of land for the construction of a solar park. The total value of the investment is put at RON 45 million (more than 10 million euros) and the local authorities will attempt to raise one third of the amount under the Regional Operational Programme, the renewable resources component.
The electricity to be generated by the future sun station, designed for a 2.4-MW capacity and a nominal power of 2.2MW, will be used to provide public lighting for the city and the own consumption of some bodies under the authority of the Local Council. The sun panels could meet 85 percent of the electricity demand of the city, and that would mean important savings for the local budget.
