$300M Wind, Solar Power

Rostovteploelektroproyekt, a Russian company specializing in the design of energy plants and equipment, said Monday that it plans to develop wind and solar power worth almost $300 million in the Krasnodar region.

“The wind project will be in two phases,” said Adolf Chernbyavsky, an engineer at Rostovteploelektroproyekt. “The total capacity will be 100 megawatts in the end. We estimate a cost of $2 million per megawatt.”

The land for the wind farm is near Yeisk, and preparations for work on the project could start as early as next year pending necessary approvals,

Chernbyavsky said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
