CHERNOBYL, UKRAINE — Ukraine has just unveiled a solar power plant just 100 meters from Chernobyl's nuclear site in which a nuclear disaster occurred 30 years ago.

The power plant will consist of photovoltaic solar panels to produce energy and will be connected to the power grid, according to a Reuters report.

Ukraine plans to diversify its energy sources by using renewable energy such as solar power.

About 3,800 panels will be installed and will produce enough energy to power 2,000 apartments.

The Chernobyl Solar Power Plant currently has a capacity of one megawatt but there are plans to eventually increase it to 100 megawatts.

Chernobyl's nuclear site exploded in 1986 and forced hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate the contaminated area which resulted in the area being abandoned due to radiation.

Humans aren't allowed to live in the area for another 24,000 years, according to AFP.
