Solar power works very well in Malta because this Mediterranean island nation receives an average of 3,000 hours of sunshine every year – making it one of the sunniest places in Europe. Solar power is an attractive option for people living in Malta because it does not rely on fuels or emissions, is cost effective and can be easily integrated into existing energy systems. Solar panels are widely used on rooftops across the island to harness the sun‘s power and generate electricity. This electricity can then be used to power electrical appliances and lighting within homes and businesses. Solar–powered hot water systems are also popular in Malta, providing a cost–effective and efficient way to generate hot water without the need for chemical fuels or energy.
