The Cyclades Interconnection enters the second stage

The first phase of the Cyclades Interconnection Project was officially inaugurated on March and now enters the second stage.
The Cyclades Interconnection is a very important Project for the Greek economy, as it provides reliable and sufficient power supply to the islands with high voltage electricity, boosting tourism and the economic activity as a whole. At the same time, the burden on consumers through Public Service Obligations (PSOs) is reduced, since all electricity consumers in Greece subsidize the more expensive electricity that is generated by oil power stations in the non-interconnected islands. Furthermore, the Project improves the environmental footprint of the islands and encourages the penetration of Renewable Energy Sources through new investments.
The €247 million Project, which was co-funded by the European Union, the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) and financed from the European Investment Bank, is the first Project completed by ADMIE under its new shareholder structure, signaling a new era of interconnections for the Transmission System Operator.
