Serbia is going to have biggest solar park on the planet
Serbia has just signed a memorandum to construct what is billed to be the planet’s biggest solar park.It’s estimated that the park will require more than $2.5 billion to establish.
The solar park will be spread over a huge 3,000 ha of land and will have an estimated peak capacity of 1,000 MWp. The Serbian minister Oliver Dulic signed the agreement with Luxembourg-based Securum Equity Partners.
He said that it will take around five years for the park to be built which will open up job for about 3,000 workers.
Once a suitable location has been found, work on the park could begin as early as next year.The decision to establish the world’s largest solar park in Serbia is due to the fact that the country receives around 40 percent more sunlight than the rest of southeast Europe.
It appears that the tradition of generating electricity from fossil fuels is slowly being replaced by more advanced and eco friendly forms of energy.
