Italy’s feed-in tariff program for solar energy will be ceasing on July 6 — a month after having reached the country’s solar energy subsidy limit of €6.7 billion. The ceasing of the program will make Italy the third member of the European Union to completely end its incentive programs for solar energy development.

170 MW of new solar photovoltaic capacity was installed in Italy during the month of April, the Italian energy agency Gestore dei Servizi Energetici (GSE) recently reported.
170 MW a bit lower than the 214 MW installed March, but also a good bit higher than the 126 MW of new capacity installed during February.
As of right now, 16.9 GW of total solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity has been installed across 515,702 PV systems as part of the Italian government’s feed-in tariff program. An additional 525 MW of capacity spread across 1,782 more PV systems are currently registered under the scheme but not yet finished.
