In this paper, the possibilities of solar energy application in the biggest Russian cities are studied and analyzed. The main research goal is to investigate the possibility of solar energy technical use in Russian regions. The research method is based on the calculation of the territory power capacity and its sufficiency for solar power engineering development. To this purpose, the authors have carried out the analysis of total solar radiation falling on the horizontal and inclined surfaces within an astronomical year. The study is carried out on the basis of the data using spatial statistics of solar radiation inflow in different seasons during the annual cycle. The assessment of solar radiation sufficiency by "technically accepted" criterion is made on the basis of B. Veynberg criteria. Finally, the authors conclude that the effectiveness of the solar energy production development is the most appropriate in the city of Vladivostok and obviously, it is not prospective in the authors’ places of residence, such as Perm and Sverdlovsk Regions.
