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. Total amount of grants is RSD 12 million (EUR 99,700) and individual users will receive up to EUR 6,650.

The lighting project has a budget of EUR 182,800, with a maximum of EUR 41,600 per user. Municipal authorities were able to apply for replacement of existing systems or introduction of efficient lamps and control equipment.

The secretariat lately implemented several schemes for energy sustainability and efficiency measures, including projects for farms.
