Târgu Cărbunești Solar Park is a large thin-film photovoltaic (PV) power system, built on a 50 ha (120 acres) plot of land located in Târgu Cărbunești in Romania. The solar park has around 80,000 state-of-the-art thin film PV panels for a total nameplate capacity of 20-megawatts, and was finished in July 2013.[1] The solar park is expected to supply around 28 GWh of electricity per year enough to power some 31,000 average homes.[1]

The installation is located in the Gorj County in southern Romania in Târgu Cărbunești. The investment cost for the Slobozia solar park amounts to some Euro 35 million.[1]
