April 28 in the Yavoriv district of the Lviv region, the industrial operation of the ground-based solar power plant Ozernaya began. This is a plus of 10 MW of power to the indicators of alternative energy and another step towards the country's total energy independence. The main purpose of this solar power plant is the development of fully ecologically safe "solar" electricity for the purpose of its further implementation into the national energy system in accordance with the green tariff.
The Ozerna solar project was developed under the country’s FIT scheme at a cost of $10 million. The plant, which relies on polycrystalline modules provided by Chinese manufacturer JA Solar and SMA inverters, is expected to produce 11 million kWh per year. Local solar company Rentechno helped the project’s developer LigAgro with the feasibility study and the supply of components. Work on the facility began in July 2016.
