Braşov City Hall has signed a contract worth over RON 75 million (€15 million), partially financed from non-refundable funds, for the construction of a park of photovoltaic panels. The photovoltaic park will provide 90% of the electricity consumption for schools, public buildings, and public lighting in the municipality. The plant will consist of 30,770 photovoltaic panels, with a peak electric power (Pp) of 650 Wp, mounted on a fixed structure.

The photovoltaic panel park, considered the most important project of the local administration in Braşov in the field of green energy production, will have a capacity of 20 MW and will cover an area of ​​22 hectares, in the Stupini district.

"The works will be carried out by Synergy Construct - as a leader, Else Enerji Anonim Sirketi - as a third party, Graphein Topo - as a subcontractor; ZOORK – as a subcontractor; and Eds Electric SRL – as a subcontractor. The investment implementation period is 120 days, of which 30 days are the design stage and 90 days are the execution of the works. The value of this investment is RON 75 million (€15 million), without VAT, part of these funds being secured through non-reimbursable financing through the Large Infrastructure Operational Program", according to a press release from the municipality.

To invest, 120 on-grid, three-phase solar inverters with a power of 150 kW, 3 data management equipment, and energy measurement equipment will be used.

As a result of the investment, there will be an estimated average annual decrease in greenhouse gas emissions of 21,002 tons of CO2 equivalent in the first year of operation of the investment. Thus, from greenhouse effect emissions of 23,408.18 tons of CO2, we reach 2,406.18 tons of CO2.

The photovoltaic park will provide 89.72% of the electricity needed for the 21 colleges and high schools, 16 secondary schools, 29 kindergartens, 8 nurseries, cultural institutions, the town hall, and the public services subordinated to the Local Council, power plants and thermal points, markets, multi-story car parks, sports facilities, the public lighting system and the city traffic light system, but also the electricity required for the skiing area, namely the artificial snow production or pumping systems.

"Added to this is the municipality's program to equip 27 educational units with photovoltaic panels, for which funding was requested. Cumulating the two projects, to which are added the educational units already equipped with such panels, the municipality will be able to ensure over 90% of the consumption needs from its own, renewable sources, which will mean an important contribution to reducing pollution, but also electricity costs", states Braşov City Hall.

 "In 2021 we assumed an ambitious target: by 2030, to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 55%, and by 2050 to achieve climate neutrality. We are certainly on the right track and every step we take means an increase in the quality of life of the people of Brasov", says the mayor of Brasov, Allen Coliban.

 The non-reimbursable funds for the realization of this park of photovoltaic panels are provided by the Large Infrastructure Operational Program - POIM 2014-2020.
