Greek island of Halki become first to produce electricity it consumes

·

Halki has become the first Greek island to successfully produce the electricity it consumes, as part of the Greek Government’s “GR-eco Islands” national initiative.

The initiative aims to transform Greek islands into models of green economy, energy autonomy, digital innovation and ecological mobility.

The initiative allows members to offset the energy produced by the polar park with the actual consumption of their electricity bills. 

According to AMNA,  the total savings made by Halki residents exceeded 200,000 euros in the last year.

Meanwhile, the polar park has contributed to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere by 2,246 kilograms.
