The first hybrid power plant in Bulgaria

Submitted on Thursday, 25 September 2008One Comment

Today in Sofia was presented the first hybrid power plant project in Bulgaria. It was prepared by the Ecowatt Technologies Foundation and the investor is the Bulgarian company Solar BG. The total investments in the plant amount 38 million Euro and will be completed in three stages. In 2008-2009 8 million Euro will be invested, in 2009-2020 – 14 million Euro and in 2011-2012 – 16 million Euro.

The hybrid plant ‘Zlaten Yug’ (‘Golden South’) will use both wind and solar energy to produce electricity. It will be located in Troyanovo village, 14km from Burgas. It’s energy producing capacity amounts 6.5MW, including wind turbines with 2MW and photovoltaic modules with 4.5MW.

The total energy output of the new plant will save the emission of 155 000 tons of carbon dioxide a year. It’s been designed to take advantage of the annual wind and solar energy patterns, so it would serve best the peak periods of electricity consumption in the winter and in the summer.

    It was time for some improvement in Bulgarian economy life. The problem is that the governers of Bulgaria are old people with oldish style of thinking. The energy politic of Bulgaria should be developed. and hybrid plants are the first step from this modern strategy.
