This paper provides brief information about solar photovoltaic power plants (SPVPP) based on semiconductor photo converters and their components, such as: solar cells, modules, panels, tiles and inverters. A brief overview of the solar power industry worldwide as well as in Russia is given. The paper also provides key technical data related to the Altai and Crimean SPVPP, examples of power supply to self-sustaining customers (residential dwellings and summer cottages, distant livestock pastures of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR), etc.), as well as conditions at which SPVPP can compete with hydraulic and thermal power generation.
