Slovenia FIT Update 2013

By Paul Gipe

Through mid-summer 2013, the Slovenian FIT program had installed 3,200 plants with a combined capacity of 460 MW in the nation of two million inhabitants. In the first half of 2013, 50 MW were added, nearly all solar photovoltaics (solar PV).

In 2012, plants under the feed-in tariff program generated 650 million kWh at an average cost of €0.137 per kilowatt-hour ($0.18 USD/kWh).

Generation from solar PV of 121 million kWh in 2012 exceeds that of hydro and rivals that of biogas and is approaching total generation from fossil-fuel fired CHP plants in the Slovenian program.
