In January March 2019, 1393 Ukrainian households installed solar power plants (SES) with a capacity of 33 MW, said Yuriy Shafarenko, director of the Department of Renewable Energy Sources at State Energy Efficiency Department, on his Facebook page in the social network.
According to him, thus, by the beginning of April their total number reached 8,850 families, and the total installed capacity was 190 MW, which is about 20% more than it was at the beginning of the year.
Power home SES is an average of 21.5 kW per family.
The largest number of stations was established in Dnepropetrovsk (1072 by 25 MW), Kiev (904 by 25 MW), Ternopil (808 by 21 MW), Ivano-Frankivsk (50 by 13 MW) and Kirovograd regions (562 by 15 MW). Y. Shafarenko notes that the greatest activity is observed in those regions where local support programs are in effect, providing for compensation of a part of the cost of equipment works (from 10% to 30%).
As reported, the number of Ukrainian households that installed solar panels in 2018 more than doubled (by 4.5 thousand) and reached 7.5 thousand; the total capacity of the equipment installed by them reached 157 MW by the end of 2018.
