Solar energy every month is gaining popularity in Ukraine. According to the State Department of Energy Efficiency, in the 2nd quarter of 2018, 1 107 families installed solar panels. This figure is twice as high as in the first quarter of 2018.
A total of 4,660 private households have installed solar power with a total capacity of almost 90 MW as of the first half of 2018, and investments amounted to about 88 million euros.
The leaders of the number of installed private solar power stations became the area:
- Kiev – 602 SES
- Dnipropetrovsk – 541 SES
- Ternopil – 365 SES
“This activity of the population is pleasantly impressive and proves that in June 2015 we introduced an effective stimulus – a green tariff for private SES with a capacity of up to 30 kW,” – said Sergey Savchuk, Head of State Department of Energy Efficiency.
As experts predicted at the 7th CISOLAR 2018 International Conference and Exhibition of Solar Energy in Central and Eastern Europe, this year we are witnessing a real boom in the development of solar energy in Ukraine. Favorable green tariffs give homeowners every opportunity to install solar panels beneficial and at no extra cost.
On the forecasts for the development of solar energy and other renewable energy sources, we will talk about the 10th International Forum and Exhibition of Sustainable Energy of Central and Eastern Europe SEF 2018 KYIV.
