EUKI Solar Adria: Results of feasibility studies for the installation of PV systems

On 13 May, EIHP presented the results of a feasibility study for the installation of a PV system on two facilities owned by the Starigrad Municipality: the Osmjeh Kindergarten and the Municipal building. These studies were conducted within the EUKI Solar Adria project, in which the Municipality of Starigrad is a pilot area of ​​project implementation in Croatia.

The results of the feasibility study for potential solar power plants were presented by Srećko Tamburović, a senior researcher from EIHP, and the presentation was attended by the Mayor of Starigrad Krste Ramić and Marin Čavić, Head of the Single Administrative Department.

The technical and economic feasibility analysis for the kindergarten building indicates the optimal installation of a 6 kW power plant that would produce about 7039 kWh of electricity per year, which would be enough to meet about 49% of its own electricity needs. With the self-consumption model, the current price of technology, and the price of electricity from 2021, the payback period is about nine years.

In the case of the Municipality building, the installation of a 5.2 kW power plant with a total annual production of 6278 kWh is proposed as optimal, which is 52% of the total needs. The payback period under the conditions mentioned above is also nine years. Given rising energy prices, the assumed payback period will certainly be reduced.

After presenting the results and discussing with the Municipality representatives, the kindergarten building was chosen as a more favorable option for implementation. In the next step, project documentation for the installation of a solar power plant will be prepared.
