Green Genius Wins Consent For Baltic Solar Sites


               Green Genius has obtained permits to build solar power plants in Lithuania and Latvia, totalling nearly 200MW of capacity. The company will install a 78MW solar power plant near Seduva, in Lithuania and a 121MW project in Latvia. The construction of both power plants is planned to start by mid-2024 for them to be operational in 2025. The solar power plant in Seduva will be built on 140 hectares of land and Green Genius will invest €70m in its construction. 

               The solar farm in Latvia, near the city of Jekabpils, will occupy an area of 153 hectares and Green Genius intends to invest €109m.  Head of solar business at Green Genius Simonas Sileikis said: “The markets in the Baltic countries have reached a certain new stage of maturity when new opportunities to develop large-scale projects arise alongside the development of usual smaller-scale solar parks. “Each of the large-scale projects will be of great importance in decentralising the energy sources and strengthening the energy independence of the entire region. “So far, Green Genius has been developing large-scale projects only in Western European countries, mainly Spain and Italy. “The opportunity to apply this experience and knowledge to the Baltic region seems extremely meaningful to me.”
