A visitor looks over the photovoltaic panels of “Solar Chernobyl” during an official opening ceremony on Oct. 5 of the new 1-MW solar power plant built 100 meters from ground zero of what was the world’s worst nuclear mishap. The concrete structure behind the panels covers the damaged fourth nuclear power block of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. An explosion in April 1986 turned the surrounding area into a dangerous and uninhabitable region of radiation contamination. The consortium that developed the project says it is the first and only real private investment in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Zone and that using contaminated land for solar parks will work for “the benefit of humanity.”
