IKEA Gets Unsubsidized Rooftop Solar Power Plant In Italy

“As a future-oriented company, Martifer Solar achieved a historical milestone with this project completed together with IKEA Group. This achievement means that solar energy is as cost-competitive as any other energy source in Italy and principally, without subsidies. The solar industry is approaching grid parity in an increasing number of places worldwide,” says Henrique Rodrigues, CEO of Martifer Solar…. The grid parity project, with approximately 2,700 modules installed on fixed structures, will produce the equivalent amount of electricity for nearly 800 inhabitants and will avoid 373 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
