Renewable energy sources in the Far East will save 8,19 million rubles annually - RAO ES of the East

JSC RAO Energy Systems of the East is actively developing alternative energy sources in the Far East. Since the delivery of diesel fuel to this region costs enormous financial and time resources, the RAO ES of the East holding is mastering a comprehensive program for the introduction of renewable energy technologies in the Far East.

RAO ES Vostoka initiated the construction of two wind power plants in the Sakhalin Region in the village of Novikovo. The total capacity of the two units will be 450 kW. Operation of the facility should begin in the second quarter of 2015, according to a press release. This project is the first in the Sakhalin region to introduce wind generation technologies. However, the project's profitability is estimated at 8,19 million rubles, since the constructed wind power plants will save 227 tons of diesel fuel annually.

Alexei Kaplun, Deputy Director General of RAO ES of the East for Strategy and Investments, reports that wind generation as an alternative source of renewable energy has already proved its economic efficiency in many coastal regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, in particular, in the territory of the Kamchatka Territory. At the moment RAO ES of the East successfully operates wind power plants in the village of Ust-Kamchatsk (Kamchatka Territory) and in the town of Labytnangi (Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District), as well as a wind farm in the village of Nikolskoe (Kamchatka Territory). Now this positive experience will be applied on the territory of Sakhalin.

Renewable energy sources in Novikovo will help increase the reliability of energy supply to consumers, as they create an additional source of generation. The wind turbines will be synchronized with the diesel power station operating on Sakhalin. The latter until recently was the only source of electricity for the village.

In parallel, RAO ES of the East is implementing a joint project with Japanese companies to build three wind power plants in Ust-Kamchatsk with a total capacity of 900 kW. In total, the construction of more than 170 similar facilities is planned, the total capacity of which will be 120 MW.

As for other renewable energy sources, the holding develops solar energy projects in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). At the moment, seven solar power plants are already successfully operating. Next year, it is planned to complete the construction of the first phase of a solar power plant in the village of Batagay, whose capacity will be 1 MW. This will be the largest solar power station, located beyond the Arctic Circle.
