Abstract: In 2014 in Bobruisk the first in the Republic of Belarus solar power plant (SPP) was put into operation with a total capacity of 2.06 MW. One installed kW from this solar plant provides about 1000 kWh of electricity during a year. The cost of energy produced by SPP can range from 0.06 to 0.09 USD / kWh depending on the particular economic circumstances in the country. The results of the first SPP start-up could be used to determine the technical potential of photovoltaics in Belarus: about 330 bill kWh of electricity per year.
