On 2 June 2022, a new government with Robert Golob as a Prime Minister came to power. Climate change, rising energy costs, supply uncertainties and dependence on energy imports induced the government to develop a plan for increasing the share of solar energy in household consumption. The project Solarized Slovenia, presented to the public on 15 July 2022, has been developed by ELES, the operator of Slovenia’s electric power transmission system, and SODO, the electricity distribution system operator. The aim is to increase solar energy production by a thousand megawatts by 2025.
The project Solarized Slovenia develops giant solar power plants in the areas where the existing electrical system allows the connection of such power plans. According to the official announcement, solar energy production will increase by a thousand megawatts in the next three years and supply one-third of households with electricity. Giant solar power plants will be connected to a community platform and provide electricity at a known price. The goal is that by 2030, all Slovenian households will be completely independent of fossil fuels for their electricity supply and will have their own long-term energy source.
Presently, the total power of solar power plants is about 100 megawatts; the capacity of installed solar power plants was about 460 megawatts at the end of 2021 (source: journal Finance).
