The State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine (SAEE) has reported the nation had 350 MW of rooftop PV operating under net metering at the end of September.
Around 240 MW of new generation capacity was deployed from October 2018 to the end of September and around 70 MW were installed in the third quarter of last year alone, the SAEE reported.
The Dnipropetrovsk and Ternopil regions had the largest volumes of rooftop capacity, with 50 MW and 37 MW, respectively, and the Kyiv region was third with 27 MW.
Around 15,000 households have installed rooftop arrays, the agency added. Total investment in rooftop systems reached around €300 million by the end of September, according to the public body.
Ukraine’s net metering regime, which is open to PV installations with a generation capacity of up to 30 kW, was introduced under the law No514-VIII, which came into effect in April 2015.
At the end of 2018, Ukraine had reached 1.3 GW of installed solar power capacity. At the time, the amount of solar under net metering had topped 121 MW.
