New 100kW rooftop PV installation in Pilicho, Aspropyrgos is online

On April 23rd, SunCarrier Services Hellas S.A., a fully owned subsidiary of The meeco Group, added another rooftop installation to the Greek national grid. The new site is situated in the municipality of Aspropyrgos, Attica (Greece), where meeco completed a similar installation back in March. 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.

“Pilicho is our new 100kW solar photovoltaic installation which is now operational and has successfully been connected to the grid. The technology used for the project includes solar BYD235Wp 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. “Alone with this solar photovoltaic installation we expect to generate a minimum of 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” insists Kitoudis.

The meeco Group along with its subsidiary SunCarrier Services Hellas, decided to work with reliable and leading local partners, such as Thricon Energy for the completion of the installation and Alumil for the supply of the mounting systems.

Technical & Operations Manager, George Kitoudis says The meeco Group will continue to add more PV installations to the Greek grid. The next project should actually be connected within the next weeks.
