Mongolia has rich renewable energy reserves. On average, the country has 270-300 sunny days annually, so it is only logical that the focus has been on constructing solar power plants in provinces.
Recently, provincial power plants have begun using solar panels for boosting capacity. For example, the Tsogttsetsii Power Plant of Umnugobi (South Gobi) has installed solar panels with a capacity of 9.2 kW for providing energy to households, via the existing distribution grid. Capital investment for installation cost MNT 64 million; it is expected to be fully recouped within a 3.5-4 year period.
