The State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE) has reported that around 3.4 MW of PV systems were installed in the country in the first quarter of this year. This represents growth of 20% to total installed capacity under the scheme, SAEE stressed.
The agency specified that more households are now considering an investment in solar under net metering due to the new tariff at which they can sell surplus power grid set for 2017, which is of €0.18 per kWh.
Net metering for solar was introduced in Ukraine with the law №514-VIII, which was issued in April 2015. The SAEE added that, since then, demand for PV systems under the scheme grew by approximately over 40% every quarter. Approximately 1,300 solar power generators were installed under net metering to date.
The scheme is open to PV installations with a capacity of up to 30 kW.
Ukraine’s cumulative installed PV capacity reached 530.8 MW, as of the end of December 2016, according to official data from the SAEE.
