Greece switches its biggest islands to mainland electricity grid

Greece is committed to renewable energy targets, and at the same time trying to resolve power issues on many of the islands, by connecting them to the mainland power grid. Cables are being drawn on the sea beds along with new power distribution stations on the larger islands thus connecting them with the mainland grid.
The diesel power generators, which were proven to be inadequate especially during the summer months, are being switched off in the Aegean. The aim is to lower costs and carbon emissions, in line with Greece’s renewable energy target for 2030.
