The regional government of the western Ukrainian region of Lviv announced that a 10 MW solar park has been connected to the grid near Yavoriv. The project was commissioned in the presence of the Ukrainian vice prime minister Stepan Kubiv.
According to the government’s press release, the Osernaya 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.
The project was awarded a FIT contract by Ukraine’s National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (NERC) in December 2016.
Ukraine’s new feed-in tariffs are set at €0.1599 ($0.1726)/kWh for ground-mounted solar power plants commissioned in 2016 and €0.1502 ($0.1621)/kWh for projects connected between 2017 and 2019. In order to receive a higher compensation, many solar developers are aiming to complete ongoing projects by the end of this year.
