BENEFICIARIES

Direct beneficiaries: more than 2,500 residents of Artsakh

Indirect beneficiaries: all residents of Artsakh, since the country receives greater energy independence by reducing gas and electricity consumption, as well as reducing the load on energy transmission networks.

SUSTAINABILITY

  • The devices practically do not require maintenance and after assembly, they simply work for the period stipulated by the manufacturer
  • After the warranty period expires, in case of a breakdown, the owner of the equipment repairs it independently and at his own expense
  • 160 installations and 1 heat pump system will save around 1 mln kWh per year
  • The project will contribute to the popularization and spread of “clean” and decentralized solar energy in Artsakh

* The implementation of the project depends on the availability of transportation, possibly with the support of the Red Cross and/or other humanitarian actors.
