Photovoltaic power plant „Kazanlak“

The PV Project „Kazanlak“ is divided into 10 separate SPVs (Solar Photo voltaic plants) with 5 MW capacity each:


  • Each company is a separate legal entity;
  • Economic independence for each of them:
  • Relieved licensing regime – not subject to licensing by the Commission for Energy Regulation;
  • Complete freedom and independence of the regulatory authorities in all actions related to the disposition of the property to ensure banking institutions, transfer of ownership and others;

  • Each separate company has signed a individual agreement with NEC (National electric company) for accession and also owns individual account of commercial metering of electricity
  • Point of connection established in the territory of the power plant substation. Voltage at the point of connection to the national power grid substation built on site – 20 kV.
  • Each of the companies owns the right to construct buildings for the period of 30 years. No need to pay ground rent within these 30 years.
