Households producing household energy from the sun

We can easily produce our own energy for our home by installing a plug-in PV system on our balcony or facade. The two-plug solar module system generates up to 800 kWh of electricity per year, enough to power your refrigerator, TV, computer and other appliances with free energy from the sun.

Project SUNRISE – Prosumer Solar Energy

The project is implemented in the period 01.11.2022 – 30.04.2025 by a consortium with the lead organization Initiative for Housing in Eastern Europe (IWO) and partners from Habitat Bulgaria, Lithuanian Consumers Alliance (LCA), Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), German Solar Energy Company (DGS) and Habitat Macedonia. The project's primary objective is to address and overcome barriers hindering the adoption by households in multi-family residential buildings of renewable energy, with a specific focus on solar energy. It is funded by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection (BMWK).
