with solar energy

ABOUT PROJECT

Electricity blackouts are a major disruption to the work of hospitals and WATER UTILITIES.

Hospitals save thousands of lives every day providing medical care to the civilian population, and for that they need an uninterrupted electricity supply. Water utilities provide water supply to the population. Solar power plants are a long-term solution to the problem, a reliable protection against possible worsening of the situation, and also one of the first steps for Ukrainian municipalities towards the green recovery of the country.

The non-government organization Ecoclub with the support of the Solar Energy Association of Ukraine, launched the Solar Aid For Ukraine Project ITS PURPOSE IS TO PROVIDE UKRAINIAN CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WITH A RELIABLE SOURCE OF ELECTRICITY, WHICH IS SOLAR POWER PLANTS.

Our primary objective is to equip as many hospitals and water utilities with a reliable and sustainable source of energy and storage with solar power plants. This will allow medical staff to continue to save lives and treat our civilian population during everyday power cuts. And SPP for water utilities guarantee uninterrupted water supply. SPP will also reduce the reliance, maintenance and burden of expensive cumbersome diesel fuelled generators.
