Brașov, a popular mountain city in Transylvania, Romania, will produce its own clean electricity, Mayor Allen Coliban announced.
The city obtained funding of over RON 40 million (USD 8.75 million) through the 'Operational Programme for Large Infrastructure' (POIM) for a photovoltaic (PV) park, which will produce enough electricity to almost completely cover the consumption of public buildings and services, reported website Romania-insider.
"Ninety percent of the electricity needed for public buildings and services in the city will be provided by its own park. Schools, kindergartens, nurseries, cultural institutions, street lighting and even the production of artificial snow in Poiana Brașov will be able to use electricity produced by us," Coliban said.
The PV-park will be built on 35 hectares in Stupini, with 30,770 panels and a capacity of 25 MW. The project's total value is almost RON 108.5 million (USD 23.73 million).
