100kW rooftop installation helps saving 95 tons of CO2 emissions per year
On March 19th, SunCarrier Services Hellas S.A., a 100 % subsidiary of The meeco Group, connected another rooftop installation in the municipality of Aspropyrgos, Attica (Greece). Situated in the suburbs of Athens, just 20 km Northwest of the capitals’ city center, the location offers one of the best solar irradiation conditions in Southern Europe.
“This 100kW solar photovoltaic installation is now operational and connected to the grid and uses Solar BYD 235Wp polycrystalline modules in association with KACO Powador 39.0 TL3-XL-INT inverters”, explains George Kitoudis, Technical & Operations Manager for The meeco Group in Greece. “The installation is expected to generate at least 135’000 kWh per year, which amounts to yearly savings of approximately 95 tons of CO2 emissions. This rooftop integrated solar installation which is connected to the national electricity grid, benefits from a Feed-in-Tariff of EURO 0.3949 per kWh. This tariff is part of a 20 year policy that not only creates jobs in the installation phase but also during the entire lifetime of the system.”
The meeco Group along with its subsidiary SunCarrier Services Hellas, decided to work with reliable leading local partners, such as Thricon Energy for the completion of the installation, Alumil for the supply of the mounting systems and again Thricon Energy who was in charge of completing the final stage of the license development.
“We are optimistic as far as expansion in the market is concerned as there is a real green energy mentality factor in the country. More PV installations will be added to the Greek grid, in fact the next project will be actually connected within the next weeks”, says George Kitoudis.
