50 Ukrainian hospitals will be equipped with solar panels
Ukrainian medical institutions will be equipped with solar stations with energy conservation systems from the charity organization “Energy Act for Ukraine Foundation” as part of the campaign of the “50 Solar Hospitals” Foundation. Now such equipment is already being installed in Chernihiv Regional Children's Hospital and Ivankiv Central Raion Hospital, with a capacity of 44.59 and 25.07 kW, respectively.
Hybrid photovoltaic plants consist of solar panels, inverters, and an energy-saving system.
“The realities in which we live, when russia has been attacking us almost every day for more than a year, set us new challenges that we cannot stay away from. Not only the military, but also civilians are under threat. The past winter has once again proved how acute the issue of energy independence is. As for the healthcare sector, when we talk about energy independence, we are actually talking about people's lives and health. Our goal is to ensure uninterrupted medical care for all patients who need it. I sincerely thank everyone who actively participates and helps us provide power supply in medical institutions under any conditions,” said Minister of Health Viktor Liashko.
The installation of solar power plants with energy-saving systems will allow Ukrainian hospitals to remain more resilient in the face of russian energy terrorism and be prepared for emergencies.
Due to solar stations, operating rooms, intensive care units, and departments of the pathology of newborns and premature babies will be provided with the necessary electricity during emergency shutdowns. Each station will be able to ensure uninterrupted operation of branches for at least 2-3 hours.
It should be noted that equipping hospitals with solar panels will make them energy-independent and ensure uninterrupted care for patients of each medical institution.
It should be recalled that the Ministry of Health reported that a number of Ukrainian hospitals will be equipped with solar panels.
