Solar Cells in Slovenia: Dynamics of Energy Production
The amount of energy produced by solar cells in Slovenia is much higher than the needs of households.
Last Friday, an average (4 kW) solar cell in Slovenia covered 181% of the household’s needs. On Saturday (27 May), it was a sunny day, and the average index increased to 198% of the household’s needs (a family of 4 people).
The largest amount of energy, according to the forecast of EnergizAIR, was generated by a solar power plant in Lesce (Upper Carniola region). With 20.8 kW/h of electricity, it covered 191% of the household’s needs, which, according to the Slovenian online forum, uses an average of 10.85 kW/h per day.
The second indicator belongs to the solar power plant in Ljubljana and makes 20.5 kW/h (188% of the needs), the third – to the solar cell in Portorož with 20.1 kW/h (184% of the needs), the fourth – to the Novo-Mesto power plant with 19.8 kW/h (182% of the needs), the fifth place – to the solar cell in Nova Gorica with 19 kW/h (175% of the needs), and the sixth indicator belongs to the solar power plant (SPP) in Murska Sobota with 18.9 kW/h (174 % of the needs).
The solar power plant in Maribor produced the least energy last Friday. With 18.7 kW/h, it covered 172% of the household’s needs.
Last Saturday, the sunny weather allowed producing even more energy. The best result was again recorded in Lesce, where a solar power plant with 22.6 kW/h covered 208% of the household’s needs. The second place belongs to the Ljubljana SPP and makes 22.2 kW/h (204% of the needs), the third place – to a SPP in Nova Gorica with 21.8 kW/h (201% of the needs), the fourth place – to the solar power station in Portorož with 21.5 kW/h (197% of the needs), and the fifth place with 21 kW/h (193% of the needs) is shared by Maribor and Murska Sobota. The solar power station in Novo Mesto produced the least amount of electricity last Saturday. With 20.5 kW/h, it covered 190% of the household’s needs.
Generated hot water supplies are also sufficient. Last Friday and Saturday, solar cells with the area of 6 square meters each heated 80-, 140- and 200-litre reservoirs of water.
