PV law introduced in Greece

A new photovoltaic (PV) law has been introduced in Greece amending the current legislation and setting new feed-in-tariffs.

The new law sets a deadline for issuing permits and by the end of 2009, all applications that have been submitted so far (more than 3 GWp) must be dealt with and approved or rejected. It also abolishes the unofficial cap of 0.8 GWp that was set by previous decisions.

A separate programme for rooftop solar PV with different feed-in-tariffs (FIT) guaranteed for 20 years will be set up, and the PV law introduces a tender process for solar PV systems >10 MWp.

According to the Hellenic Association of Photovoltaic Companies (HELAPCO), it is yet unclear when new applications will be received, although it predicts it will probably be after 2009.

The new feed-in-tariffs (FITs) are guaranteed for 20 years and will be adjusted annually for inflation (25% of last year’s consumer price index).

A grid connection agreement can be signed, however, locking the FIT gaining another 18 months to finalise installation.
