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.
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.
- 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.
