According to Greek electricity transmission system operator ADMIE, the works on the construction of electricity interconnection between the island of Santorini and the mainland will start in mid- January 2022.

The connection of Santorini to the mainland network represents the first step in the fourth and final phase of the Cyclades interconnection, whose overall budget is worth 410 million euros, of which 165 million euros will be provided by the Recovery and Resilience Fund.

The island will be connected to the nearby island of Naxos, which was interconnected with the country’s mainland grid in October 2020, during the second phase of the Cyclades islands interconnections.

ADMIE expects the Santorini interconnection to be completed and operational in the first half of 2023. It also enables further interconnections with Milos, Folegandros and Serifos islands, with the completion of these projects expected in the first half of 2024.
