One of the largest photovoltaic power plants in the Czech Republic (and the central, eastern and southern Europe, for that matter) can be found not far from the municipality of Vepřek in the Mělník District. The complex, which boasts an installed power output of 35 MWp, was the ninth largest photovoltaic power plant in the world in September 2010 when it was launched.
Prior to the construction of the Vepřek PVPP, a separate transformer station needed to be built in the Land Registry Area of Spomyšl, one that would supply electrical current to the 110-kW line. The newly-built complex comprising 13 blocks is found on a 204-acre site, an area equivalent to approximately a hundred football pitches. Photovoltaic power plant construction commenced in mid-2010 and the opening ceremony of the Vepřek PVPP took place as early as September 2010. The project was implemented by the company DECCI a.s. that presents their photovoltaic power plants under the common trademark FVE CZECH.
