Italy update: Current Italian legislation for self-consumption includes the possibility for owners of PV systems up to 20 MW to sell all or part of the produced power to a single final client.

Solar plants are one of the most popular investment projects. Investors should be able to expect safe returns and a stable earning, while operating costs remain manageable. Operational systems in particular are highly regarded. A bit out of focus are turnkey systems – unjustly, as can be seen on closer inspection.
