In the first eight months of 2017, Slovenia has paid 103.7 million euros for subsidies for the production of electricity from renewable energy sources (RES).
This money was paid for produced 654,901,243 kWh of electricity. 39.1 million euros was paid during summer months only, which is 1 % more than during the same period last year. Reasons for increased RES production during summer should be sought in seasonal photovoltaic production, which is also the most expensive, and the price in this year was increased from last year’s average of 177 euros/MWh to an average of 186 euros/MWh. In August, production of electricity from solar power plants increased the most, hydropower production dropped by 40 % compared to last year’s, while Slovenia still does not have any wind farms.
