Solar Power Plant

At a time when both the environment and social responsibility have an increasingly important role the University of Ljubljana, School of Economics and Business and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering recognised the potential of unused roof surfaces as a source of extra income both in the form of exploitation and sale of electricity. A study from the Laboratory of Photovoltaics and Optoelectronics showed that the solar power plant will also significantly contribute to the reduction of the carbon footprint captive production. The sale of electricity also represents a significant reduction in the high annual costs for the faculty.

Therefore, on the roof of the faculty 432 modules with a total power of 105 kW were installed in December 2011. With the connection of the solar power plant onto the distribution network the Faculty of Economic became the first faculty in Slovenia which, to our knowledge, combined the concern for the environment with the exploitation of the solar energy. Consequently, the operation of the solar power plant is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 57.84 tons annually.
