To realize the green scenario, foreseen in the Energy Development Strategy in the Republic of North Macedonia until 2040, the existing coal-fired thermal power plants with an installed capacity of 800 MW should be successively closed in the coming period. For the same reason, the Republic of North Macedonia became a member of the PPCA Alliance (Powering Past Coal Alliance) and the first country from the Western Balkans that, together with Spain committed to abandon the production of electricity from coal by 2030. Hence, the problem that has been elaborated is very relevant because it deals with the continuation of the existence of MPC "Oslomej" through energy transition, that is, the replacement of electricity production from coal, with the production from solar energy. The analysis in this paper is focused and aims to address the importance of the further operation of MPC "Oslomej", with the construction and commissioning of the first photovoltaic plant PVPP Oslomej 1 of 10 MW. Afterward, MPC "Oslomej" will continue with the construction of PVPP Oslomej 2 of 10 MW and PVPP Oslomej 3 of 100 MW, which will completely replace the existing coal-fired thermal power plant TPP "Oslomej" of 120 MW. The construction of these photovoltaic power plants in the mine of the Oslomej plant, during the energy crisis is the first example in SouthEastern Europe, for which the European energy community reacted positively and expressed support to JSC ESM
