The Government of Macedonia (FYRM) has allocated over EUR 800.000 (MKD 50 million) for the promotion of renewable energy sources and improvement of energy efficiency in households for 2018.

The subsidy program, recently published on the Ministry of Economy website determines the method, conditions, criteria and procedure for allocating these funds from the budget.

EUR 97,500 (MDK 6 million) is intended to cover part of the cost for the purchased and installed solar thermal collector system up to 30 percent, but not more than EUR 300 per household. In order to be eligible, the household has to purchase the system after the public call.

For the old windows replacement and the purchase and installation of PVC and aluminum joinery, a total of EUR 490,000 (MDK 30 million) is allocated. Each household will be compensated up to 50 percent of the total cost, but not more than EUR 500.

Households which choose to switch to pellet as their heating source and buy the appropriate furnace will be reimbursed up to 50 percent of the cost, but not more than EUR 500 per household. For these purposes, the government has allocated EUR 228,000 (MDK 14 million).

The deadline for applying for subsidies is August 31, 2018.

Fund distribution and payment is the responsibility of the Ministry of Economy.

Individual compensations will be approved on the first-come, first-served basis. Incomplete and inappropriate documentation are not going to be taken into account. The final decision will be made by a respective three-member Commission.
