US solar power developer Premier Power Renewable Energy Inc. has announced it has started construction on a new 16.2-megawatt plant in the Southern Bulgarian town of Dimitrovgrad.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2012. It's being built on a former coal mine in a joint venture with the engineering/design firm Plaan Czech.

The project represents a more than 75% increase in the country's solar capabilities since the beginning of 2011, when installed capacity was reported at approximately 21 MW.

"Our previous successes in Eastern Europe – a region few others have been able to effectively penetrate – are now enabling us to capture significant market share in Bulgaria," said Bjorn Persson, executive vice president of European operations at Premier Power, as cited by Sacramento Bee.

Premier Power Renewable Energy is a solar power company providing solar panel systems for commercial, agricultural, industrial, government, utility and residential customers.
