City of Skopje subsidizes pellet heating

The City of Skopje has paid the subsidies for purchasing a pellet furnace in 2016.

A total of 196 citizens met the criteria envisaged in the subsidy programme according to principle “first-come, first-served”.

The public call for subsidies was released on October 12 and closed on November 4, including 343 applications.

“All applications were reviewed, with 196 accepted as meeting the requirements, whereas others either did not fulfill the criteria or were filed after the programme funds were exhausted”, said the City of Skopje.

The call was issued in order to stimulate citizens in using renewable energy sources as heating in their homes. The funds amounted to 70 percent of the pellet furnace price, but not exceeding MKD 30,000 (EUR 500). The total budget of the subsidy programme amounted to MKD 5,9 million (EUR 95,000).
