Ηow Greece can help more than 300,000 vulnerable households become small self-producers of solar energy and free themselves from energy poverty.

The Greek government could immediately start implementing an ambitious 10-year social solar policy program, helping vulnerable families free themselves from energy poverty and the current problematic and ineffective subsidy support system, according to a new report by Greenpeace Greece.

What’s more, the program is a lot cheaper than the current subsidy support system – would only cost consumers on average around 45 million euros per year – while it will help Greece make the energy transition socially fair and with the principles of energy democracy intact.

It also presents a great opportunity for the Public Power Corporation (PPC) to turn the page on fossil fuels, start focusing on energy citizens and improve its social and environmental profile.
