Wind Farm on Aghios Georgios Island
In the uninhabited islet “Aghios Georgios”, located 11 N.M. from Attica, operates the first
onshore wind park with off shore wind park characteristics, exploiting the high wind
potential of the Aegean Sea.
The wind farm is an autonomous electricity production unit, that is connected to the
National Transmission System via an on site new substation (20/150kv) and through a
submarine cable connecting it to the mainland.

  • Total capacity: 73.2 MW
  • 150 million euro investment
  • One of the largest investments in electricity production from RES
  • The most innovative one incorporating a submarine connection between the
    island and the continental system.
  • The annual produced electricity covers the energy needs of over 40,000
    households
  • Contributes to the annual savings of over 60,000 tons of oil and the reduction of
    over 180,000 tons of emissions
