More citizens installing Solar Panels

More and more citizens are interested in installation of solar collectors in their homes. For this purpose the government will allocate Denar 6 million in subsidies in 2013.
I am happy that more and more citizens are applying in the Ministry of Economy for subsidies. I hope that in the future the interest will increase and the ministry will be able to expand the programme, Economy Minister Valjon Saraqini said at the open day under the motto "Buy Solar Collector - Apply for Subsidy."

The public announcement for subsidies has been already announced and will last until May 31.
If all of the about 600,000 households in Macedonia install solar thermal collectors on their homes, then the country could save up to €1 billion, Saraqini said.

Professor Konstantin Dimitrov from Faculty of Mechanical Engineering said that there are quality solar collectors in Macedonia that meet strict European standards.

The event's goal is to promote the usage of solar collectors in households and potential of the sun in our country as renewable energy source as well as benefits from use of thermal solar collectors.

Open day was organised in cooperation with the Macedonian Center for Energy Efficiency.
