From wasteland to solar park: What Ukraine plans to do with Chernobyl

Ukraine will soon generate power again in the 1,000 mile square exclusion zone that surrounds the site of the Chernobyl atomic fallout, but this time it won’t be nuclear energy. With the land being so cheap and high-voltage lines already in place, the Ukranian government plans spend $1.1 billion to install a solar park capable of producing a gigawatt of electricity. Not only will it increase Ukraine’s renewable energy supply, but it will also help Ukraine lessen their dependence on Russia for natural gas.
