Conergy completes 1.5 MW in Greece


While there remains a serious challenge in developing photovoltaic projects in Greece, stemming from difficulties in securing finance, smaller projects continue to be completed. The latest three, supplied by German-based developer and manufacturer Conergy, will feed 1.5 MW of electricity into the Greek grid.

In completing the supply and installations of the three parks, which are located in Livadia and Karditsa, Conergy has indicated that the investors behind the projects plan similar photovoltaic power plants in the near future.

Conergy partnered with local photovoltaic project developers Diasindesi SA and Photovoltaika Karditsa Ltd. on the two projects it was the main contractor for. In total, 6,2000 Conergy "P Series" modules and 51 inverters were used in the installations.

"In 2012 we have proven that we can act very successfully in the Greek market, working closely with our strong network of partners," said Conergy Greece managing director Stefanos Melissopoulos, in a statement announcing the three projects’ completion. "By doing so, we can still get things moving, even in these tough times. A solar power plant is one of the safest investments in our country, and combined with the growing importance of environmental issues, we feel we can be optimistic about the future of our industry."
