Today, the first autonomous hybrid power generation system was put in operation in Menza village in the Trans-Baikal region of Russia.
As Construction.RU was told by the press office of the region’s Governor, the plant would ensure energy supply to three remote settlements.
Menza’s autonomous hybrid power generation system has become the first one built within the framework of implementation of the Russian national energy project. Altogether, over 100 such power-supply installations are scheduled to be built until the year 2021.
The system consists of solar modules with a total capacity of 120 kW, two diesel generators 200 kW each, as well as of an energy accumulator with a capacity of 300 kWh.
The usage of alternative technologies will reduce the consumption of diesel fuel from 250,000 down to 86,000 liters per year and cut atmospheric emissions of carbon dioxide by 500 tons over the course of the year.
