Environmental awareness

After Chernobyl became the largest environmental disaster, it seems to have found hope in a new project. A project that aims to become the largest solar energy platna worldwide. A project with great ambition and that somehow wants to turn the area into a much greener space (environmental level).

In Chernobyl there is an exclusion zone of about 1,000 square kilometers. An area that was affected 30 years ago when the reactor No. 4 broke out and liberate 500 veves more toxic material than the Hiroshima bomb. A chilling fact.

Within the exclusion zone, you want to use 6,000 hectares to place the solar panels. This area remains unfit to live, but if it allows the development of such projects.

It is expected that can produce 1,000 MW of solar energy and 400 MW from other types of energy. As remark, commenting that the nuclear plant he had, gave an energy of 4,000 MW.


At the moment already they have been pronounced entiedades some bank interested in financing the project. Among them are the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), which would be interested in financing part or the whole project.

In addition, the environment minister said Ukraine is negotiating with two US companies and four Canadian origin.

It should be noted that throughout the exclusion zone continues to grow and nature takes its course despite being a non-habitable for humans area.
