Finance the installation of solar collectors for the Uruguay Solar Plan.

The Solar Plan – deployed in 2012 - focuses on the existing private residential sector. In order to promote solar thermal energy in new social housing, the Ministry of Housing, Land Planning and Environment plans to make a mandate where all new housing built with public funding will have to include the necessary infrastructure to install solar collectors. Private housing that benefit from a public contribution will also be included in the mandate. Over 2,000 new social houses are built with government funds per year and 4,000 built by private institutions with public contribution. The incorporation of this mandate is one of the pillars of the NAMA allowing the installation of at least 4,000 solar collectors per year.

As Uruguay has three local manufacturers of solar collectors, this program also boosts the domestic sector and increases the technical expertise of the companies, contributing to the cost decrease by technological learning. NAMA funds would be used to (help) finance the installation of the collectors, which would then be paid back through the electricity bill using an approximation of the savings achieved due to the use of solar technology. A continuous flow of financing can be generated once funding for the development of the program has been obtained.
