Ongoing - Solar Artsakh

In response to the Azeri government’s intent to continue its genocidal plans against the Armenians of Artsakh – by cutting off the gas supply lines, which are going from Armenia to Artsakh, thus halting the mundane life of the Armenian people in Artsakh – the ARS initiated the solar water heater program for Artsakh. Currently, solar water heaters are available and used in commercial establishments in Artsakh; however, the panels’ cost and installation costs have made it very challenging to adopt this limitless resource for residential use. One house can get a solar water heater for $1000!
