Cyprus completes €6.6 Million Initiative to Outfit Schools with Solar Power Systems.

The initiative to equip 405 school buildings in Cyprus with Photovoltaic Systems has concluded successfully, with a total investment of €6.6 million. During a press conference in Nicosia commemorating the project's completion, Minister of Education, Sports, and Youth Dr. Athena Michaelidou, alongside Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC), disclosed that the endeavor resulted in significant energy savings for schools, achieving a 30% reduction in overall energy consumption.
The comprehensive endeavor involved installing PV systems with a combined capacity of 4.9 MW, along with thermal insulation for approximately 84,000 square meters and waterproofing for the PV system locations. The successful collaboration between the EAC and the Ministry of Education is in line with the 2030 National Strategic Planning for Education and Sustainable Development, contributing to a more energy-efficient and sustainable future for the country’s public schools.
