Solar power plant Vis
, with the connection capacity of 3.5 MW is currently in trial operation. It is located on the area of 5.5 ha, on the hill Griževa glavica, at an altitude of around 250 meters, near the place Žena glava, around 3.6 kilometres southwest of the town of Vis and around 4.8 kilometres east of the town of Komiža. 11,200 photovoltaic modules with the power of 340 Wp were installed into the power plant, 5.2-km long medium-voltage cable network was constructed and five frequency converters with nominal power of 720 kW were installed. These converters were produced by the Croatian company Končar, in cooperation with which HEP has realized this project. Expected annual generation amounts to around 5 million kWh of electricity, which can meet the needs of about 1,600 households. By constructing the solar power plant, the island of Vis got its own source of renewable energy and thus a higher security of electricity supply. The investment is worth HRK 31.3 m. Along with the solar power plant, the installation of a battery tank with the power of 1 MW and capacity of 1.44 MW is going to ensue in the following phase. Technical documentation for it is in the making. This battery tank will be used to provide the services of balancing electric power system and to maintain the stability of the network on the island.
Solar power plant Cres
is being constructed at the location Orlec Trinket east, 2 kilometres north of the place Orlec on the island of Cres. The project was developed by Primorsko-goranska County until obtaining the local permit. Connection capacity of the solar power plant is 6.5 MW, and expected annual generation is around 8.5 million kWh of electricity, which corresponds to the power consumption of around 2,500 households. The power plant covers the surface of 17 hectares and is divided into 13 segments, the power of each being 500 kW, with the total of 20,330 Solvis 360W panels. The investment is worth HRK 41 m, and the contractor is the consortium PVI Solar, PVI GmbH, Intecco and Deling. The power plant shall become operational at the end of 2020.

Solar power plant Marići is being constructed in the municipality Žminj in Istria. The 1-MW power plant will generate around 1.2 million kWh of electricity annually. The investment is worth HRK 9 m. The panels produced by Solvis from Varaždin are being installed into the power plant. The power plant is expected to be put into operation in August 2020.
Solar power plant Kaštelir 2 is going to be constructed in the second half of 2020 at the location Sabadin in the municipality Kaštelir-Labinci in Istria. The 2-MW power plant is going to generate 2.9 million kWh. The investment is worth HRK 15 m. The project represents the expansion of the existing SPP Kaštelir (1 MW), which has been operational since December 2018 and it generated 1.5 million kWh in 2019. The panels produced by Solvis were installed in the power plant. Find the aerial footage of the power plant here.
