The international experience has demonstrated to have successful systems using renewable energy sources (such as solar collectors and photovoltaic panels), it is important to have appropriate human capital and quality assurance systems that give confidence to consumers in a developing market. The Government announced a subsidy for new houses, which will be a big boost to the market. This subsidy funds 100% of the house up to the value of 2,000 UF and a decrease of up to the value of 4,500 UF. It is expected that new companies will be created and that the prices will be more competitive.
The massive application of these systems used for houses and especially for public buildings, such as schools, clinics, sports centers and public buildings, represents a big opportunity to:
Small scale solar systems for residential, public, commercial and industrial use could generate significant economic benefits for those who implement them. This project intends to address a number of environmental conditions with a systemic approach to transform it into a massive, reliable and accessible solution, that generates new companies and quality jobs.
The objective of this project is to create technical capabilities, procedures and technological infrastructure in Chile to ensure successful market development of the small-scaled solar thermal energy, generating wealthy and quality jobs for the country through:
