    Approximately 150 trees were plantedand bushes of Cypriot flora, such as ropes, aradofnes and lasmari, which were granted by the Department of Forestry, with the aim of creating a green, model energy parking area. Among the trees planted stand out two orange trees, which were granted by the government farm of the Department of Agriculture in Paphos. These are two parent trees, which, after giving thousands of plants to the Cypriot citrus industry, were “retired” and now planted in the Ministry's model photovoltaic park.

    All the trees and shrubs that have been planted are species with reduced water needs and adapted to local conditions, as well as with zero need for the use of plant protection products.

    The model photovoltaic park with a capacity of 73 KW is expected to be completed soon, and will contribute to reducing the environmental footprint of the Ministry building. It is going to fully cover the energy needs of the building of the central administration of the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment, while there will also be provisions for charging electric cars.
