North Macedonia's power distribution company EVN Macedonia, part of Austrian energy group EVN, said it has installed a photovoltaic (PV) power plant that simultaneously produces electricity from the sunlight and the reflection of light.
The PV plant located in Negotino, in central North Macedonia, is the first of its kind in the country and has a capacity to generate 2.1 GWh of electricity per year, EVN Macedonia said in a press release on Thursday.
The power plant has an installed capacity of 1,479 kW and consists of bifacial solar panels that produce electricity from both their sides - from direct sunlight in the front side and reflected light in the back side.
