Green Vardenis: expanding the use of low carbon energy solutions
The project aims at enhancing energy security of Vardenis community, Gegharkunik region through expanding the use of low-carbon energy solutions. The region is characterized with high solar energy potential that will create enabling conditions for diffusion and commercialization of low-carbon technology in the community and beyond.
Within the project activities it is planned to install solar PV stations in the community kindergarten, music school and municipality with a total capacity of 36.9 kW, as well as upgrade the street lighting system of the city through replacing 320 street lights with new LED lamps. Moreover, the project is planning to install lighting systems at all 43 yards of apartment buildings, thus ensuring comfort and safety of the community members.
As a result of the project activities, the community will have around 6,000 USD saving annually, which will be directed to cover the utility bills of vulnerable communities and spontaneous arrivals from Nagorno Karabakh.
