Furthermore, the project aims to stimulate the specific market and to increase the social basis, as well as to remove the problems regarding management and ownership of solar pv systems. The possession of systems is transferred to the residents of the dwellings. The owners are obligated by a contract to cooperate in a training and to maintain the installation for 10 years.
