Solar electric plants are to be installed in Vodlozersky NP at a remote tourist base Novguda which will provide the site with electricity and make it possible to offer tourists more comfortable accommodation.

In order to prepare for the installation of the equipment a group of engineers of the NP and ANO EEC came to Novguda to study the site. The work on the selection and measurement of the optimum site for the installation of solar panels was carried out. Since the equipment will be set up in a national park where cutting the forest is prohibited it was of primary importance to define the place for installing the panels with minimum shadow where most solar energy can be collected even in winter time.
