The first photovoltaic power plant in the country that simultaneously produces electricity from the sun and the reflection of light was installed in Negotino by EVN Macedonia at the end of 2020. This power plant is part of the most modern world technologies, made by the so-called bifacial panels that accumulate direct sunlight from the upper part, while from the back part they accumulate the reflection of light from the reflecting material additionally placed under the panels. The bifacial photovoltaic power plant of EVN Macedonia in Negotino is composed of 4416 panels with a power of 335 W, respectively installed power of 1479 kW (1.48 MW) and has a capacity of 2.1 GWh for annual production of electricity from renewable electricity sources.
