Provincial Secretariat for Energy and Mineral Resources of Vojvodina said it decided on applications for grants to co-finance projects for utilizing solar energy in irrigation systems and for energy efficient lighting in municipalities and cities.

The funds for irrigation are intended for registered farms in Serbia’s northern province and can be used for purchasing new solar-powered pumps and other necessary equipment. Users will have the possibility to use the grant to finance energy efficient gear for utilizing solar energy for irrigation while reducing costs, decreasing dependence on import fossil fuels and enhancing the level of energy independence, the documents said. Fourteen individual farms are entitled to between RSD 564,000 (EUR 4,690) and EUR 5,810 each.

The lighting project had a budget of EUR 182,800, with a maximum of EUR 41,600 per user. The City of Subotica and five municipalities were granted between EUR 19,940 and EUR 39,000, the secretariat said. Municipal authorities were able to apply for replacement of existing systems or introduction of efficient lamps and control equipment.
