“With these installations, the total number of storage units in the country increased to 227,477 by the end of 2022.
The total capacity of these units, which are dependent on 1.53 GW electricity production systems, reached 2.75 GWh.
The vast majority of these storage units, which were mostly installed in residences, were connected to photovoltaic systems.”
