Once an empire, Greece is now confronted with maybe the country’s most harsh economic crisis since its birth in ancient times. However, solar power seems to represent part of Greece’s salvation, just like Archimedes’ solar rays once saved them from the enemy.

Gioros Papaconstantinou, Greece’s Environment Minister, recently unveiled a $28 billion plan for building a 10 GW solar power plant throughout the country. The speech has been held at the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition from Hamburg, Germany.

The project’s timeline will span across a longer period of time. Papaconstantinou’s plans, as quoted by Reuters, are to have as much as 2.2 GW by 2020 and 10 GW by 2050, when Greece would actually be able to export the energy produced on its sunny locations.
