Significant funding has been allocated to ensuring the energy sustainability of the Ukraine through a new solar power plant.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has announced that it is providing €5.7 million to help finance the development, design, construction and operation of a new solar power plant in Ukraine.

The new facility will be a 4.5 MW plant located in the Vinnitsa region of the eastern European country and will be developed by Green Agro Service LLC.
