Power distributors CEZ and EVN will temporarily disconnect renewable energy power plants in western and southeastern Bulgaria to maintain the balance in the system.

The measure was requested by the Electricity System Operator (ESO) in connection with the imbalance between production and consumption.

Power distributor CEZ will switch off all wind and photovoltaic plants on the territory of Sofia, Pernik, Kyustendil, and Montana for a period between 10 am and 6 pm on Thursday.

Meanwhile, EVN Bulgaria is also taking steps to introduce temporary restrictions to the electricity produced by renewable energy plants in southeastern Bulgaria.

The restrictions will be introduced between 10 am and 5 pm on Thursday and 40% of the installed renewable energy capacity will be gradually disconnected according to an agreed schedule.

CEZ and EVN say that they remain ready to change or extend restrictions upon request from ESO.
