Enel Commissions New Romanian 6.5 MW Solar PV Plant

Global operator Enel Green Power has announced the connection of the Colibasi PV plant to the Romanian power grid. The 6.5 MW photovoltaic plant is set to be able to generate approximately 8 million kWh of electricity a year, enough to power around 7,000 average Romanian households.

Located in the country’s south-east, the Colibasi power plant takes the EGP’s Romanian installed solar capacity up to approximately 26 MW, and add another 4 thousand tonnes of equivalent CO2 emissions a year.

The Colibasi plant is the third PV plant commissioned by Enel Green Power in Romania, following the Berceni 1 and 2 plants.

Romania is not a country known as a renewable energy powerhouse, thanks in part to cuts to solar support which have hampered development in the country, though the country has had a few successes. At the end of 2012 Europe’s largest onshore wind farm was brought online “in the heart of Dobregea Constanta County in Romania”. At the same time, Romania has regularly placed in the top 20 countries for solar, as reported in the following stories;

PV Tech note that Romania has been reported to the European Commission by Czech public utility company ČEZ “for a decision to postpone the so-called Green Energy Certificates until 2018.” According to the story, “In a policy change announced in early June, effective from 1 July 2013, the Romanian government has deferred payments to renewable energy producers, as well as suspending the issue of green energy certificates which renewable energy facilities must have.”
