1 MW of PV was built in Cyprus resulting 10 PV parks. The total PV power of the island is now at 25 MW, with up to 100 MW more due in the next two years.
These 10 new built parks were inaugurated this weekend. The firms that installed them are Ergo Energy Ltd and GeSolar Ltd. The total cost of the project reaches up to €2.7 million.

10 kWh of energy are expected to be generated annually by the new photovoltaic constructions.
The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism announced that the program includes 5000 households which will have PV installations by the end of this year.
