In February, the programme aimed at accelerating the adoption of energy saving technologies was adopted at the initiative of the President. In accordance with the programme, the work is underway to install solar panels on the roofs of apartment houses and government buildings.
It is planned to install solar panels with a total capacity of 220 megawatts. As was reported during the presentation, solar panels with a total capacity of 107 megawatts have been installed across the country so far. The pace of installation work at government agencies is higher, while the programme is implemented at social institutions at a slower pace.
