Two solar farms that will generate enough electricity to cater for around 500 families per year are being developed in Gozo.

The farms will generate two million kWh per year. The farms, are being developed by a joint venture between the Malta Chamber of SMEs and the Water Services Corporation on its reservoirs. They cover an area of 9,360m², with 2,871 panels.

The venture will, in future, also be able to invite families who do not have space to install panels to buy a portion of future projects.
