Solar insolation

Solar power in Ukraine is obtained from photovoltaics and/or solar thermal energy. In 2011 90% of electricity came from nuclear and coal. In order to reduce this, Ukraine adopted a feed-in tariff (FIT) which is one of the highest in the world - UAH 5.0509 (EUR 0.46) per kWh. Europe's largest solar park at the time, the 100 MW Perovo Solar Park was completed at the end of 2011.[1]
