Positive Energy, a contractor that specializes in using renewable energy technologies, has completed the construction of a 100-kilowatt-peak (kWp) photovoltaic park in the southern Peloponnese, it said yesterday. The construction of the project, located in the area of Diavolitsi, north of Kalamata, was completed with Ergopack SA, and it has been connected to the national power grid, Positive Energy said in a statement. «The new photovoltaic park in [the prefecture of] Messenia secures significant benefits for the local community and the environment,» said the owner of Ergopack, Vassilis Haritsis. On an annual basis, the photovoltaic park – which converts solar radiation into power – is expected to produce at least 175,000 kilowatt-hours of electrical energy, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 175 tons, the company added.
