Solar Energy

Four solar power plants are already under construction across Kazakhstan

The 2020 goal is to have four solar power plants in operation producing a total of 77MW of electricity in addition to the energy produced through the slated wind and hydroelectric plants. The recently announced solar-power-generating complex in Kyzylorda Provice will be capable of generating 65 megawatt hours of electricity itself a year. A major step forward in Kazakhstan’s timeline was the opening of the Astana Solar LLP photovoltaic solar panel production plant in Astana two years ago which will fulfill Kazakhstan’s increasing demand for solar panels.

Kazakhstan’s estimated solar energy potential is 2.5 billion kilowatts a year a result of its 3000 hours of sunlight a year.
