Determination of the technical and economic indicators of solar power plants is examined in the paper. The dynamics of growth of installed capacity of solar power plants is shown. Formulas for calculating the installed capacity cost of solar power plants and the cost of electricity generated by solar power plants are presented. The influence of the service life on the technical and economic parameters of solar power plants is examined.
