The Regulatory Office for Network Industries (ÚRSO) has again started inspecting photovoltaic power plants in Slovakia saying it is doing so based on information from various sources on large-scale as well as small-scale fraud and unfair practices during their construction and installation, the SITA newswire wrote.

The spokesman for the office, Miroslav Lupták, said that the photovoltaic industry has stirred justified doubts whether the plans they declared comply with reality. The regulator will check over 1,200 solar power plants and the spokesman said the regulator expects its inspectors to reveal further flaws in the connection of the facilities to the grid and their generated output.

The spokesman added that the checks will help improve the photovoltaic industry and separate honest businesses from dishonest players, adding that the results might curb costs of electricity generation from renewable sources which could then be reflected in lower electricity price for consumers.

Last year the regulator inspected 404 solar power plants. Based on its investigation, ÚRSO filed 45 motions with the General Prosecutor’s Office which has now launched proceedings against 14 companies.
