IN NIKOLAEVKA, ODESSA
This Project is a solar power program located in Nikolaevka, in the Odessa Region of Ukraine.
This place is suitable for the exploitation of the solar energy since it receives a lot of sunlight (as we can see it in the following map, developed by solarGis):
Activ Solar has constructed the Nikolaevka Photovoltaic power plant which consists of roughly 116 hectares of photovoltaic panels installed. There are 290,048 crystalline photovoltaics modules installed, allowing the use of the solar energy and its transformation to electric energy for human consumption. The project has an installed capacity of 69.7 MWp. The Activ solar project finished in August 2013.
Coolmyplanet.org publicly recognizes the contribution that this project brings to the fight against Environmental change. This project combats the devastating effects that human activity are causing on the environment since the use of solar energy avoids the fossil fuels burnt and the depletion of the natural resources. If less fossil fuels are used, there will be a reduction of the projected rise on the average temperatures of the Earth’s Surface.
This program has a cooling effect on temperatures equivalent to 35000 Credits.
Credits account the compensation effect of the temperature rise generated by the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions and/ or the reduction in heat absorption by changes in physical properties of the use of land in specific projects.
The Credits generated by this project will be assigned to citizens willing to offset their Environmental footprint, and be part of a global movement to fight now climate change.
