Public Call for Subsidizing the Installation of Solar Systems for own Needs on Individual Housing Facilities (BiH)
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has announced the Public Call for subsidizing the installation of solar systems for own needs on individual housing facilities in the area of the City of Mostar.
The activity is carried out within the project “Accelerating the transition to clean energy using the potential of solar energy in Bosnia and Herzegovina” (SolarCET), supported by the Government of the Slovak Republic and implemented by the UNDP office in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The SolarCET project aims to encourage citizens, owners of private and public buildings to use solar panels and collectors, as a measure to support the transition to clean energy, the fight against air pollution and energy poverty, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the number of citizens suffering from respiratory diseases in Bosnia. and Herzegovina.
The public call is conducted within the SolarCET project, in cooperation with the project ” Initiation of environmental financing for the purpose of low-carbon urban development” (URBANLED), which is implemented by UNDP and financed by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
The URBANLED project is focused on urban environments that largely contribute to environmental pollution, due to unsustainable management of city infrastructure and irrational energy consumption. The aim of the project is to invest in launching the concept of low-carbon urban development in Bosnia and Herzegovina through the promotion of safe, clean and healthy cities, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The project is implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Ministry of Spatial Planning, Construction and Ecology of the Republic of Srpska, the Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism, the Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency of the Republic of Srpska and the Fund for Environmental Protection of the Federation of BiH .
The main goals of this Public Call are to realize, through the implementation of the installation of solar systems in the housing sector:
Reducing electricity costs by producing electricity in their own photovoltaic systems,
Increasing resistance to changes in electricity prices,
Increasing the use of renewable energy sources and
Reduction of emissions of solid particles and gases with the greenhouse effect (GHG).
The final amount of funds for co-financing that will be provided by the City of Mostar and UNDP will be defined during the inspection of the received applications, whereby the minimum amount of co-financing of direct investment by the City and UNDP will be 48,000 KM for all beneficiaries.

Applicants selected through the Public Call will have the obligation to subsequently submit invoices for the electricity supply service for the period of the previous three (3) years and have them available immediately before the arrival of the consultant in charge of creating the solar system installation project;
Photograph of the external appearance of the object (in color) that is the subject of the Public Call, with a view of the entire object from which it is evident that the object is structurally correct, i.e. that there is no structural damage that could threaten the integral stability of the object after the installation of the solar system (photograph of the object should be made so that you can see two sides of the building, the storey of the building and the roof);
A copy of the cadastral plan, not older than 6 (six) months counting from the date of publication of the Public Call;
Land registry extract, not older than 6 (six) months counting from the date of publication of the Public Call;
Checklist for submitted documentation;
Statement on related parties;
A statement of all co-owners, certified by the competent authority, giving consent for the implementation of the installation of the solar system on the object that is the subject of the application to the Public Invitation – in the event that there is more than one owner for the individual residential object in question;

That it will enable persons authorized by UNDP to access the facility in order to verify the existing condition;

that they will co-finance the execution of works with the measures determined by the prepared technical documentation in accordance with the conditions defined in the Public Invitation;
that after the installation of the solar system, the data about it will be entered into the ISA (eng. Interactive Solar Atlas) – installed power of the system, expected annual production, information about the contractor, date of commissioning and photo of the power plant;
That after the installation of the solar system, it will not be alienated;
that they will allow persons authorized by UNDP to access the facility one year after the installation of the solar system in order to verify the use of the solar system.
Individual residential buildings that are not eligible for subsidization through the Public Call are:
