Description: 
In Greece, renewable electricity generation is mainly promoted through a guaranteed feed-in tariff. Law No. 3468/2006 differentiates between different renewable electricity producers according to whether or not they are located on a Greek island i.e. whether or not they are connected to the mainland grid. The law is revised in 2010, Law 3851/2010 retained the distinction between interconnected and non-interconnected grid only for few technology options; in most cases, the level of the feed-in tariff was determined by the installed capacity of the power plant.
