Bulgaria's power grid operator ordered all renewable energy producers on Sunday to reduce their output by 60 percent in an attempt to balance production and consumption in the Balkan country, the state-owned company said.

The grid operator has already imposed output cuts on  thermal power plants in the coal-fired Maritsa East complex and on Bulgaria's nuclear plant due to low domestic consumption and weak demand for power exports in the region.

Reductions similar to the renewable energy cut have been imposed several times since late May.
