The solar power plant will be built on an area of 60 hectares near the city of Ceske Budejovice in the country's south. CEZ, Europe's largest energy company, is expected to finish the solar power plant's construction in twelve months, Czech Radio reported.
The power plant's solar panels will cover an area equivalent to 80 football fields, Czech Radio said.
