PROJECT DETAILS

Sweden has reached 231 MW of cumulative installed PV capacity as of the end of December 2017, according to provisional statistics from Swedish energy agency, Energimyndigheten.According to the figures, new additions for last year totaled 91 MW, which makes 2017 the year with the largest growth ever recorded in the Swedish solar market.

The strong growth registered over the past two years was also the consequence of several actions taken by the Swedish government to revive a market, which had been paralyzed by the introduction of a solar tax on commercial PV. In addition to reducing the tax by 98%, the Swedish government has also allocated additional funds for solar rebates.
