Solar panels

A final stage of project GreenSol implementation commenced in Vodlozersky National Park. The project implementation started in 2018 and is aimed at introduction of eco-friendly energy sources in nature protected areas.

One more facility is now equipped with a solar power station - eco camp Calypso on Velikostrov island. This installation is subject to additional requirements as the camp is filled with energy-consuming infrastructure such as a canteen, camp counsellor house, kitchen, washrooms, children's playground, etc. Solar panels fully satisfy their demand in power, namely for lighting,  functioning of appliances and communication equipment as well as security devices.  

In the framework of the final stage of the the project, seminars and workshops on environmental awareness with school children abd visitors are planned.
