Project summary
Asan green village is one of the projects developed under the Local Energy Development Program in Korea. The objective of the program is to construct a cluster of homes whose energy is largely supplied by renewable energy sources. There are 26 buildings in Asan green village and each building has 4 families. The PV systems total capacity is 208kW and the capacity for each building is 8kW (2kW/home).

Urban scale PV aspects
Asan green village consists of 26 buildings and each building has 4 families. The PV systems total capacity is 208kW and the capacity for each building is 8kW. So there are 104 families in this PV community with 2kWp/home.

Special PV project info
PV architecture and building integrationThe buildings layout was developed, as their roofs would face to the south direction. PV modules were mounted in the angle of inclination of the roof.
Urban planning issues
Economical and financial issuesA scheme of the Local Energy Development Program is that a local government shares 30% of the installation cost and the central government pays the rest (70%). Each family substitutes 80% electric charges off on PV.
PV ownershipBuilding owner: Inhabitant. PV owner: Inhabitant. PV energy user: Inhabitant.
Tariffs and metering
Info on grid issues-
Other infoAsan green village was constructed by Habitat for Humanity Korea. Habitat for Humanity Korea, an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, was initiated in 1992 and formally registered with the government in 1995, and has built 396 houses through 13 local affiliates across the country and another 379 houses overseas for low-income families as of December 2005.
