Bulgarian capital Sofia preparing photovoltaics programs for vulnerable households

Bulgarian capital Sofia is preparing photovoltaics programs for vulnerable households, sustainable energy online platform Balkan Energy News reported.

The Sofia municipality has an air quality improvement component in its new photovoltaics program for single-family homes and It launched a tender for a contractor for the purchase and installation of rooftop solar power panels with batteries, Balkan Energy News added.

Households that replaced their wood and coal stoves with air-to-air heat pumps (inverter air conditioners) through an earlier local program will be eligible for up to 4 kW for free, Balkan Energy news quoted Bulgaria’s newspaper Kapital.

The budget is 2.2 million euro excluding value-added tax, so it can cover some 220 beneficiaries.
