Energy minister inaugurates HUF 90 billion solar park

Energy Minister Csaba Lantos inaugurated a 90 billion forint (EUR 243.5m) solar park with an annual capacity of 372 GWh in Mezocsat, in northeast Hungary, on Tuesday.

Antal Ritter, the managing director of investor PolSolar, acknowledged the company’s Hungarian and foreign partners as well as the contractors who worked to set up the solar park, the largest in the region, “on time and on budget”. PolSolar financed the project with its own resources and proceeds from a bond issue, he added.

Extor Energy will operate the park with the support of Alteo.

Speaking at the inauguration, Minister of Energy Affairs Csaba Lantos said the government’s “most important task” was reducing the country’s energy dependence. He noted that Hungary imported 76 percent of its energy.
