ITALY'S SOLAR POWER PRODUCTION PASSES ITS WIND POWER PRODUCTION

Aruba, September 27, 2012 - Italians are appreciated for their passion for loving strong and living for love. True to their naturalistic approach, they are setting good examples in renewable energy, and they are way ahead of most of us in this (its installed solar power per capita is 5 times that of California).

Modern geothermal electricity generation was developed in Italy, long before power plants were developed in Iceland, New Zealand, or California. Now, as Windworks.org reports, solar energy has actually passed up more developed and prevalent (worldwide) wind energy. “This may be the first time that a developed country has generated more electricity with solar PV than with wind energy,” Paul Gipe writes.
“Gestore dei Servizi Energetici (GSE) reports that not only did solar PV development grow dramatically in Italy during 2011, as widely reported, but that solar PV generated nearly 10.7 TWh of electricity for slightly more than 3% of internal consumption.”
