Europe’s largest solar power plant located in Ukraine will be completed by the end of 2011 and will deliver 80 megawatts of power to add on to the existing energy supply of the country.

The solar photovoltaic power plant in Crimea, an autonomous republic in Ukraine, is part of the country’s National Natural Energy project launched by the State Agency of Ukraine for Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation in 2010.

The solar power plant will be comprised of 360,000 modules, capable of producing around 100,000 megawatt-hours per year, which is expected to reduce Ukraine’s carbon dioxide emission by 80,000 tons.

It is aimed to produce electric energy from clean and renewable sources such as sun and wind power. The project seeks to increase alternative energy production by up to 30 percent

After the construction of the last two power production lines, the solar farm will be equal to 207 football fields. The power plant will provide additional electricity to 20,000 households.

Massive 2 GW Solar Panel Based Solar Farm For China



by Energy Matters


A US thin-film solar power company will partner with Chinese state-owned Guangdong Nuclear Solar Energy Development Co., Ltd. (CGN SEDC), to begin construction of phase one of what will become one of the world’s biggest solar farms.

Ukraine to open Europe
Why Gee Whiz -- if it's 80Mwatts -- then those numbers work out to be 3.4hrs/day.. (((Given 100,000 MWhrs/yr)))

Or if it's really only averaging 40MW -- they MIGHT get 6.8 hrs/day.. Except during the Ukraine Winter of course.. That's a bit iffy..

It'll be GREAT for the Ukraine "broom ready" jobs program.. How many football fields??

So some people get temporary jobs cleaning snow off of solar panels. Versus permanent medical jobs taking care of people with asthma and black lung from the effects of mining and burning coal.

And that house probably pays most of it's electrical bills with those solar panels, even in the winter.

Ole Rocks:

Not really chief.. The coal plants will still be operating all day long.. Because you don't turn them on and off like a light switch. MORE JOBS -- for the backup plant operators and maintenance crews !! How wonderful...

You know what's missing here Ole Rocks? Can't find a single daily production chart for this German solar farm.. Are they not PROUD of what they're producing? They've got a year or two by now for sure.. If it was GOOD news --- you KNOW it would be all over the internet.. The wind people made the mistake of releasing their daily production charts. Maybe that's why eh??

Solar power in Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Germany is one of the world's top photovoltaics (PV) installers, with a solar PV capacity as of 2010[update] of almost 17,000 megawatts (MW).[1] The German solar PV industry installed 7,400 MW from nearly one-quarter million individual systems in 2010, and solar PV provided 12 TWh (billion kilowatt-hours) of electricity in 2010, about 2% of total electricity.[2] Some market analysts expect this could reach 25 percent by 2050.[3]

The Ruskies are going to cut trees and level and doze an area the size of 207 football fields and displace God only knows how many villages and people in the Ukraine but that's OK with the left as long as they can dream about the failed science of solar energy.

A warm place with no memory.
To how many Olympic-sized swimming pools does this equate? Football fields doesn't quite cut it.
It's not about semantics, it's about the math.

LOL. Damn, have you ever studied any geography at all? Are you telling me that the Ukraine is all forested and has no naturally level places in it? 207 football fields would make maybe a half of a section.

A football field, goal post area and all, is 360' X 160'. A bit over an acre. 207 of those would be maybe half a section.

It's a stupid place to put a massive solar installation. So you've got to look at the other incentives..

Ref | Solar energy

The main indicators that are important to the company deciding to start operation in the field of solar energy in the certain state market are the size of the tariff for electricity generated by solar panels, and the amount of solar radiation.

Also such factors as the existence and amount of public subsidies and tax preferences stimulating private and commercial sectors to install solar panels, a working mechanism for "green tariff", the level of development (saturation) of the solar energy market of the state and the investment attractiveness of the state in general, as well as lending instruments, in particular, are important.

We consider these factors in relation to Ukraine.

The legislative framework for "green tariff", according to which there are different rates of "green tariff" depending on the source of renewable energy, is created and works in Ukraine.

Pursuant to the law, the amount of "green tariff" is set for each type of solar stations at the commencement of each year and depends on the price of electricity in this period. For solar stations located on the roofs of buildings, a "green tariff" is set at UAH 484.05 kopecks per 1 kW/h excluding VAT in 2010, if the power of a station does not exceed 100kW, and if it exceeds, a "green" tariff is UAH 463.00 kopecks per 1 kW/h without VAT. For photovoltaic objects placed outdoors, the highest rate - UAH 505.09 kopecks per 1 kW/h excluding VAT is set.

Thus, the ground objects of solar power today can receive a "green tariff” at the level of UAH 6.06 per 1 kWh (including VAT), or 60.6 eurocents per 1 kWh (!!!). (The market is considered "interesting" if the tariff is higher than 28 eurocents).

Currently there is no subsidization of the purchase and installation of solar panels in Ukraine. However, according to the law, which came into force on 1 January 2010, the companies that produce "green" electricity, are exempt from income tax up to 2020. In addition, the companies are exempt from VAT on importation of equipment in Ukraine till 2020, if such equipment relates to the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Holy CRAP! That's 0.84Cents US per KWH!!!!!!!!!! And no income tax and no VAT??? That's "sustainable"????

No wonder the Ukraine is getting a large solar installation. While MOST of the rest of Europe cuts the subsidy teate off.

Where are all those GREAT daily production charts from Europe eh???
