Modest Solar Energy Figures – Quarterly Figures / Solar plants produced 0.3% of total energy
Data on energy production from photovoltaic plants remain modest, in relation to the total energy produced mainly by hydropower plants, while for the first quarter of this year the amount produced by the sun reached 0.3% of the total. According to data from INSTAT, a total of 8001 MWH of energy was produced in the period January-March, marking an increase compared to the same period last year.
However, the increase in production from water resources reflects a decrease in the total weight of production. According to data from the Energy Regulatory Authority, the number of plants that produce energy from the sun reached 11 during 2020, which has led to an increase in energy production from this source, although they do not constitute significant data in terms of energy use. diellore. However, although this amount is extremely low in relation to that produced by hydropower plants, it takes on a special importance in terms of diversification of energy production sources.
This is because our country is dependent on energy produced from water, which in periods of drought is followed by bills to be salty to import energy to meet consumer needs. Thus, during 2020, the Electricity Distribution Operator spent about 118 million euros for the purchase of energy. Meanwhile, what is expected to bring a great impact in this regard is exactly the construction of the photovoltaic park of Karavasta and that of Spitalla, which in total will have an installed capacity of 240 MW.
