Solar energy on district scale
Grodno Region’s first solar power station opens in Shchuchin
Agrokhimsvet has finished the last stage of construction of a solar power station in the Shchuchin District’s village of Rozhanka. The first panels were launched in 2014, with more installed by late June 2015. These have an output capacity of 230-250W, covering an area of over two hectares. The power station generates about 8,500kWh of electricity daily.
The Rozhanka-based power plant is the first solar power station in the Grodno Region.
The same investor plans to implement another alternative energy project in the Shchuchin District by 2018. A former airfield is the construction site for the new solar power station, generating up to 2.5MW of energy. Design specifications and estimates are now nearing completion.
The third solar power installation in the region is to be built in the Grodno District’s village of Rogachi.
