DTEK energy holding has launched Tryfonivka solar power plant with a capacity of 10 MW in Kherson region, the press service of DTEK has reported.
“Construction works at Tryfonivka solar power plant started in March and finished in the second half of July 2017. A total of 37,000 solar panels made by JA Solar and ABB’s inverters were installed at the plant. From August 1, 2017, the plant generates electricity and transmits it to the Ukrainian power grid,” the company said.
According to DTEK’s calculations, annually the solar power plant will generate 11-12 million kWh of electricity, which is enough to supply 15 neighbor settlements with electricity. Thanks to the operations of the Tryfonivka solar power plant saving of CO2 emission will be around 12,000 tonnes a year.
