Italy could be set to increase the amount of solar energy it can produce.

Conergy has announced that it has completed work at two new solar power plants in the country, bringing its total to six in Italy altogether, reports Renewable Energy Focus.

The firm is now capable of producing 6.6 MWh from its Italian solar energy facilities in the central European country, after installing 7,000 Conergy PowerPlus solar photovoltaic modules on sites in Nardo and Parabita.

Solar energy produced from the Apulia solar power plants will now be fed into Italy's national grid after Conergy added inverters at the sites.

This comes just a few days after independent solar power producer Etrion Corporation agreed a deal with SunPower to purchase the Montalto di Castro solar photovoltaic power park, which is the largest of its kind in the country.

SunPower president Howard Wenger said the sale is indicative of the firm's success in the European energy market, as well as being an important milestone.
