Kosovo's grid operator KOSTT has revealed that a 150 MW (megawatt) solar park will be built soon, in the municipality of Gjakova, in the southwestern part of the country, reported the pv-magazine.

The CEO of KOSTT, Mustafa Hasani, and the director of Solar Energy Group Europe, Egbert Schnuse, signed, an agreement for the grid connection of the solar plant, which is planned to be connected to the 110-kV (kilovolt) transmission network through a new 110 kV line with a length of about 6.5 km, the network operator said in a statement.

The plant is scheduled to begin commercial operations in 2022. No further details were revealed on the project. When built, the plant will be Kosovo's first large scale solar park. Kosovo had just 7 MW of installed PV capacity at the end of 2019, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency.
