Abstract: The paper presents an overview of some solar photovoltaic grid-tied installations in Malta, and gives a description of their purpose and date of commencement, besides other data. A presentation of the Maltese past and present situations and the future prospects of solar photovoltaics is given. A brief comparison between the performance of existing grid-tied PV systems is made to demonstrate the good potential of generating electricity from the sun, thus making photovoltaics a future contributor to the energy mix in Malta. Finally, some proposals are presented, which could be used by national legislative and statistical offices, in order to foster the wide-spread application of solar photovoltaics in a professional and orderly manner.
