Solar potential in Ukraine

Solar power in Ukraine is obtained from photovoltaics 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]

History[edit]

In 1985 there was SPP-5 [uk] (SES-5, 5MW), first and last build solar station in Soviet Union near town of Shcholkine in Crimea. It was stopped in 1990s and demolished afterwards.

Households stations[edit]

As of March 31, 2019 there is 8,850 households solar power plants in Ukraine with a total capacity of 190 MW. Investments in these power plants - about 180 million euros.

The largest number of solar power stations was installed in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast - 1072. In the Kyiv Oblast - 904, in Ternopil - 808, in Ivano-Frankivsk - 580, and in Kirovohrad - 562.

The power of home SPP is an average of 21.5 kW per family.[2]

Currently, about 12,000 households use solar panels in Ukraine. In Q2, solar panels installed more than 3,000 households with a total capacity of more than 85 MW, which is more than 2 times more than in the first quarter of 2019. Since Q3 2015, the number of households installing solar panels has increased almost 100-fold. The total installed capacity of the installed solar plants and households is 280 MW, and the investment of households in solar energy amounted to EUR 240 million.

The largest SES was installed in households in Dnipropetrovsk, Ternopil and Kyiv oblasts (including Kyiv). These three regions account for more than a third of all households using solar energy.[3]
