Observing the world of renewable energy and sustainable living

Solar Power Plant in Abakan, Russian Federation

Russia is not exactly a front runner in renewable energy, which is not surprising, given Russia’s vast fossil fuel reserves. If local initiatives do occur it is almost always without federal subsidies. On December 15, 2015, the Abakan solar power plant of 5.2 MW was commissioned.

Local Shaman appears to give his blessing to the new solar power plant. Now the waiting can begin for the first sun rays to arrive. Abakan has 310 sunny days per year.
