Prilep District Council approved of the lot on which the first solar power plant is to be built in Prilep. Skopje-based company Trust will install collectors, which will produce one Megawatt of electricity a year, on three hectares of the land.
Branko Neskovski, manager of the urban planning department says that Prilep wants to be a leading city in the initiative for the production of electricity.
"The project will be built on a lot of some three hectares or 30,000 square metres. Private investor came up with the idea to use all riches of the nature. Hopefully, the construction of the complex will end during this year and this energy source will soon be connected to the energy system of the Republic of Macedonia," Neskovski said.
