Solar power plant to be built in Orechová Potôň

Bratislava-based investor Nawitas Development, which is prepared to spend €54 million (Sk1.6 billion) on the project, selected the site due to the amount of sunshine enjoyed in the area near the town of Dunajská Streda. Orechová Potôň is among the sunniest places in Slovakia.
