We expect to complete the construction process by the end of November. When we connect to the grid, we save 8500 tonnes of CO2 in a year, so that is a significant contribution to the climate accounts, says Ove Sotberg, operations director at Norsk Solar.
Norsk Solar has started construction of its 9MW solar power plant in the village of Semypolky, Ukraine.
The plant will be constructed and operated under management of Norsk Solar, and it is expected that the plant will start to deliver to the grid at the end of 2019. Once the plant is in production, it will deliver 11,000 MWh annually. The renewable energy provided will ensure annual emission reductions of about 8,600 tonnes of CO2, and will supply over 5000 households with renewable energy in the next decades.
