Bulgaria to set rules for building new wind and solar power farms

Jan 23, 2010 01:00 AM

Bulgaria will introduce tighter rules for building new wind and solar power farms to tame a boom that has threatened to overload the Balkan country's energy grid, the Environment Ministry said.
Generous government incentives for electricity produced from renewable energy generators has led to an avalanche-like increase in projects, totalling over 12,000 MW -- well above the European Union country's grid capacity.

The power network's operator warned last November that the green energy rush could end up in so much new supply it could cause blackouts on the national grid.
The new centre-right government, elected in July, had initially considered a temporary moratorium on renewable projects but instead opted for stricter regulations to bar speculators, the Environment Ministry said.
