In 2010 KARATZIS Group of Companies entered the field of renewable energy sources with the installation of 240 KW solar power panels in the production facilities in Heraklion.
In 2011 the Group developed a series of solar parks in Larissa and Boeotia with a total power of 6 MW and began its energy production in the fourth quarter of the same year.
During 2012 the Group completed that installation with another series of photovoltaic parks in Katerini and Boeotia with a total power of 7.5 MW, an investment which launched the power output of the group to 13.74 MW.
To monitor the production and safety of photovoltaic plants, a sophisticated telemetry system and cameras has been installed that allows real time monitoring in a specially designed room at the company's headquarters in Heraklion Crete.
Given the attractive business opportunities offered by the sector of renewable energy sources in our country, the Group has taken a strategic decision that is to focus even more on this area of activity by taking over companies in this industry as well as by applying for additional electricity output licenses to the Greek Energy Regulatory Authority.
