The Swedish Co2mmunity partner Energikontor Sydost, has started an engagement for a communal puchase of PV cells. Information was provided and the interest was perceived to be strong! Naturally, as they had a great example of how a bottom-up RENCOP can work: The installation of a solar PV system by a tenants’ association in Växjö. Anders Lundgren, one of the citizens living in the house saw a potential and his community, rather the tenants’ association acted with him – to help all of them save money. Local government supported the project by taking on 30% of the labour cost, again helping local artisans. Truly a bottom-up RENCOP development.
