Tryfanivka solar power plant has produced 12.5 million kWh of “green” electricity since the beginning of 2018. On November 23 the plant achieved its annual target thanks to a large number of sunny days.
All this electricity is enough to power half of households based in Velykooleksandrivsky district, Kherson region, for a year.
Moreover, 12.5 million kWh of “green” electricity is equal to more than 13,000 tons of CO2, which will not be emitted into the air.
Summer was the most “energy-productive” season, yet April (+23%) and October (+30%) were also the months when the target was exceeded.
“In 2018 good weather and well-organized operations helped the plant produce more electricity than we expected. This is great news not only for us but also for the country because “green” energy does not have an adverse effect on the environment,” said Oleksiy Kucherov, chief power engineer of Tryfanivka solar power plant.
Tryfanivka solar power plant is DTEK’s pilot project in the solar energy sector with the design capacity of 10 MW. In August 2017 it was put into operation and began to generate “green” electricity to the power grid of Ukraine. The plant is located in Kherson region. (SCM/Business World Magazine)
