Throwing Money to the Winds

Krasnodar, 2 March – Yug Times. The cost of a kilowatt-hour produced by the use of solar energy is 2.5 to 3.5 roubles, which is comparable to the electricity tariff for rural inhabitants, considerably lower than that offered to urban dwellers, and several times less than the commercial price. Managers of commercial companies that now pay 8 to 9 roubles per kW/h would most likely not refuse to cut their expenses by three times.

One of the most important results of the Russian Investment Forum recently held in Sochi was signing of a number of large-scale agreements in alternative power engineering.

Multi-billion investments have been foreseen for projects aimed at transformation of kinetic energy of air masses, “chasing after the Sun” and waste recycling. A considerable part of these projects are to be fulfilled in South Russia, the Krasnodar region included, mostly because of favourable climatic conditions.

Nikolai Driga, Technical Director and Co-Founder of Own Energy Ltd., says that: it is a shame that the Krasnodar region, unlike our other South Russian neighbours, does not have any large solar energy projects. After all, the number of sunny days in Kuban is well comparable to that in Adyghea that has announced the construction of a big solar energy complex.

We have unique natural conditions that are not being really used so far, however in my opinion now it is time to get all sources of renewable energy start working. It would be efficient economically.

The equipment used to use solar and wind energy is becoming more affordable. It is being produced in Russia as well - for instance, Russia makes high-quality solar panels, wind generators, controllers and invertors. It is worth noticing that the demand for this equipment is constantly growing, which fact ultimately makes the prices for it lower.

Another factor that makes renewable energy sources more and more appealing is continuous rise of electricity tariffs. They are raised once a year, at the least.
