Achievements of “EU4Yerevan - Solar Community” project within the framework of EC-funded “Covenant of Mayors - Demonstration projects” Programme15/02/2022
With the financial support of the European Union and within the framework of EC-funded “Covenant of Mayor - Demonstration projects” Programme, Yerevan Municipality is implementing "EU4Yerevan - Solar Community" project.
Solar PV systems are being installed at rooftops of 90 multi-apartment buildings in Yerevan. The electricity generated by PV installations is consumed by elevators, indoor and outdoor lighting systems at common spaces of buildings. It is estimated that electricity bills at common spaces will reduce up to 50%. Indoor and outdoor lighting systems are also upgraded by installation of LED lamps and control systems.
Energy efficient lamps are also handed to around 300 low income families. Savings accumulated as a result of the Project will be invested in energy efficiency retrofits.
By fostering green economy Yerevan will reduce GHG emissions. Quality of life will be improved for 26000 residents in Yerevan.
