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.
