The Oreshets photovoltaic power plant covers an area of 10 hectares. It was built on the site of an abandoned woodworking factory in the Oreshets industrial zone. Vidin County is not only one of the poorest regions in Bulgaria but also in Europe. In addition to building the power plant, CEZ has also reconstructed the transmission networks and the electricity transformers in the area.
The photovoltaic power plant was designed and built in 3 months by the German company Solea. The project was managed by Continental Wind Partners, one of the leading clean energy companies in Eastern Europe.
