The third phase of a modern solar power station was commissioned in Pidhorodne, Dnipropetrovsk region, which uses a unique in Eastern Europe solar tracker system, the press service of Dnipropetrovsk regional state administration reported.
The solar power station is equipped with movable modules that are capable of ”tracking” the sun. The station generates up to 2,500 kW of power per hour, thereby significantly reducing the consumption of coal and preventing harmful emissions into the air. The station will supply electricity to some 27,000 households during a year.
The press service stresses that mobile batteries can produce up to 50% more energy than traditional fixed installations.
The third phase of the solar power station consists of 3,700 solar modules.
”In total, some 10,400 power modules with a capacity of over 2,500 kWh are operated here. This is enough to supply power to about 27,000 households in Pidhorodne and Zoloti Klyuchi suburban settlements. The power station will help save nearly half a million tonnes of coal a year and prevent greenhouse gas emissions,” said Director General of Solar Park Pidhorodne Yuriy Hordiyev.
The solar power station has been built using only domestic investments. A total of UAH 20 million was spent on the completion of the third phase of the station, according to the report.
