Industrial solar stations

In this section of our website, you can get acquainted with the main stages and constituent elements that arise during the construction of industrial solar power plants on the territory of Ukraine, regardless of their capacity. Industrial solar stations are called solar energy facilities, established by legal entities on the ground, on the facade or roof.

At the present time there is a mechanism in Ukraine that stimulates the development of renewable power generation, the so-called "green" tariff. This tariff is regulated by the Law of Ukraine "Concerning the Electric Power Industry", is set on the date of commissioning of the station and does not change until 2030. The reference of tariff to euro is also very important fact that is levelling risks of national currency devaluation and additionally guarantees projected return on investments to SPS. After tariff expiration from 2030, you can implement generated electrical energy on direct contracts market according to commercial cost.
General laws and regulative acts on “green” tariff are: Act of Ukraine "Concerning the Electric Power Industry", № 575/97-ВР from 16.10.1997, as amended and supplemented, bylaws of CMU, bylaws of National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission. You can get acquainted with structure of formation of “green tariff”, its size, legislative and regulatory structure, defining the tariff on profile websites of state institutions or with the help of specialists of our company.
Up to date, the industrial solar power stations are divided by the tariff rate into stations installed on the ground and stations installed on existing roofs and fronts of buildings and structures. A table of "green" tariffs values with recalculation in euro / W, inclusive of VAT depending on the date of introduction of SPS into operation is listed below.

SPS STRUCTURE (operating principal of SPS)
Basic elements of industrial inline solar power stations:
I
Solar panel is a principal component of SPS, it serves for sunlight-to-electricity conversion
II
Supporting metalwork is metal goods, allowing mounting of solar panel on ground, roof and front of a building
III
Converter - converts and transfers electrical energy from solar panels to external network
IV
Automatic system for commercial accounting of power consumption is a metering system of electrical system of solar station on generation and for own requirements
V
Power facilities is a complex of equipment which serve for power delivery provision of SPS, according to electrical networks requirements, including switch boards, electric transformer, electricity transmission lines
