Hungary’s one of the largest solar power plants, Tázlár Solar Park construction is now complete. It started commercial operations and joined the electricity grid through a newly installed high voltage substation.
Tázlár Solar Park which has an integrated capacity of 63 megawatt-peaks (MWp) is located in the city of Tázlár and consists of more than 115,000 solar panels. It provides electricity to more than 36,000 households and covers an area of almost 100-hectares.
The new solar power infrastructure is co-owned by MET Group, MASPED Első Magyar Általános Szállítmányozási and HO-ME 2000 Vagyonkezelő. The companies used their own resources and commercial bank project financing to fund the investment worth approximately 50 million euros.
The solar power plant incorporates the latest technology and has an expected lifetime of at least 30 years. As part of the project implementation and in line with the applicable provisions of the Forestry Act, the investors are planting more than 42,000 trees as well.
Tázlár Solar Park is expected to make a major contribution to achieving Hungary’s renewable energy targets and reducing the country’s dependence on energy imports.
