Spanish PV sector registers a 145% growth in 2017, with 135 MW of new capacity installed

A total of 135 MW of new PV capacity was added in Spain in 2017, with a rise by 145% compared to the capacity installed in 2016, 55 MW. The new capacity is for self-consumption, solar plants connected to the grid and off-the-grid installations, especially for rural electrification.
