Producing electricity from Renewable sources

A micro-enterprise received EAFRD support to purchase the equipment for producing renewable energy and achieve significantly reduced operational costs and level of energy autonomy.

Project summary: 

A Local Action Group in one of the poorest regions in Europe, Isperih, Bulgaria,   helped a local entrepreneur to solve his problems of frequent power cuts, which hampered the daily activities of his micro-enterprise in waste recycling. As part of this project the beneficiary purchased and installed a photovoltaic roof system of 6kWp and a wind turbine of 1kWp, controllers, invertors, and 24 batteries.

Project results: 
  • the microenterprise reduced its electricity bill by 75%;
  • energy autonomy was achieved and the uninterrupted operation of the business is now secured;
  • two work places were created.
