Greece seems to be getting places, reportedly installing a 300MW of Solar PV in January alone. This means that they have installed a third more than they did last year and is greater than what Germany installed (275 MW).
LAGIE bares that the 282 MW were ground-mounted PV projects and that 18 MW came from rooftop arrays.
At the moment, Greece has a solar capacity of 1.72 GW but based on projections, the cumulative capacity is expected to make a big leap to 2.58 GW by year’s end. Not a bad breakthrough considering the financial distress they are in right now eh?
Red tape aside, Greece will still have to deal with a floundering economy. However, hopefully taking advantage of ample sun and cutting-edge technology will help in the effort to get the country back on its feet.
