The destruction of the Kakhovka Hydroelectric Power Plant by the russians has caused flooding and devastation in the Kherson and Mykolaiv oblasts, resulting in a loss of at least 500 MW of renewable energy generation. 

This was announced by Artem Semenyshyn, Head of the Solar Energy Association of Ukraine, in a comment to Energy Reform.

He states that 334 MW was attributable to the HPP itself, and over 150 MW to solar power plants, among which 130 MW are industrial ground solar power stations. According to him, the disconnection of substations prevents power output by other network solar power plants, causing significant damage to Ukraine, which is currently forced to import electricity.

"Of course, all damages and losses will be accurately calculated much later, but it is already evident that this catastrophe has significantly impacted the renewable generation in Ukraine," stressed Semenyshyn.
