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.
