PRISTINA (Kosovo), June 7 (SeeNews) – German solar technology firm J.v.G Thoma together with Kosovan partner J.v.G. Jaha Energy has launched a solar panel plant worth more than 5 million euro ($5.7 million) near Kosovo’s capital Pristina, Jaha Energy said on Tuesday.

The plant, which opened last week, has an annual capacity of 200,000 photovoltaic panels of 250 watt, a Jaha Energy official told SeeNews in an email.

The new plant will manufacture DESERT solar panels, which are especially made for hot climate conditions. They have longer life span and produce more energy than usual solar panels.

The plant has an area of 3,000 sq meters.

According to local media, the plant has a staff of 50, but this number is expected to increase in the future.

“We need to invest in such projects, which not only open new jobs, but are also environment-friendly and perspective for Kosovo, as well as have great export potential,” parliament speaker Kadri Veseli said on Facebook on the occasion of the opening.
