The German Vario green energy group ended the construction of six solar parks with a total power capacity of 6.2 MW. These are located in the Slovak regions Poltár, Biskupice and Rumince. The photovoltaic solar parks consist of 70,000 solar modules that will soon feed in 7 million kWh of electricity into the local grid, while the plant operators will get a remuneration of 38.23 Eurocents.

All the components of these solar parks were developed by Vario green energy Concept GmbH from Holzgerlingen, near Stuttgart in collaboration with Vario green energy Parks GmbH from Munich. The assembly operations were provided by Draka Service GmbH from Nuremberg and a local grid connection partner and lasted from six to eight weeks. Despite a difficult policy for the energy industry, the German Vario will continue developing its projects on the Slovak territory, even if the company plans to redirect its activity only on the roof-top market. Until now, Vario green energy has developed solar power plants with a total capacity of 7.8 Megawatts in the Slovak Republic
