Before even the official start of summer, Italy's solar photovoltaic (PV) plants are meeting more than 10% of the nation's electricity demand, according to figures released by grid operator Terna (Rome).

The nation's PV plants generated 2.68 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity during May 2014, a 10% increase over a year prior, and met 10.8% of the nation's electricity demand. When hydro, geothermal and wind are included, Italy met 41% of electricity demand during the month with renewable energy.
