The opening ceremony was attended by Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan and Deputy Head of Mission of the Federal Republic of Germany in Yerevan Klaus Wendelberger.  

“Talin-1” was designed and built by Armenian company “Arpi Solar”. The project was funded by a group of Armenian investors, the German-Armenian Fund (GAF) and the German government-owned development bank KfW.  The construction costs comprised $1 million.

The power plant covers an area of 1,800 sq m. It has capacity of 1 MW, which equals energy consumption of about 400 families.
