Ukrainian energy company DTEK has informed that its 3 solar parks in the country this morning began to create power for the nationwide grid once more as restrictions on the operation of clean energy centers started to be lifted.

Renewables plants have not created power for the Ukrainian grid because state-owned electricity transmission system operator Ukrenergo bought them to be powered down on Thursday, for a three-day test of running the grid in isolation from the power systems of Russia and Belarus.

That grid seclusion exercise was part of a plan to at some point link the Ukrainian grid with the pan-European network supervised by EU body the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity, a DTEK speaker claimed.

After the trial concluded, on Sunday, the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy chose to remain to run the national grid alone mode, suggesting renewables centers in the nation had to stay powered down.

Nonetheless, DTEK informed today that limitation has begun to be lifted, for the very first time considering that Russia attacked the nation a week earlier, with the representative stating: "Since the early morning of March 1, DTEK RES [Renewables] solar energy plants Trifonovskaya, Nikopolskaya, [as well as] Pokrovskaya [have actually begun] to get load as well as supply electricity to the grid due to the progressive lifting of limitations by NPC [National Power Company] Ukrenergo."
