In the result of its operation every month on average 745,000 AMD will be saved and greenhouse gases will be cut by 7.2 tons. The solar intensity in Tavush region is over 1500 kW per hour per square meter, which is 1.5 times more than in Europe.

Vahe Sharafyan, the CTO of Solaron, said this is the most Armenian station in Armenia because its design, production and assembly was fully implemented by Armenian specialists. All panels are “made in Armenia”. He also noted that in the design stage the panels were installed without using concrete, not to harm nature.
