The Lyceum “Dimitrie Cantemir”, the Gymnasium “Mihai Eminescu” and 2 kindergartens from Cantemir are the beneficiaries of the wide scale EU-funded project: “Thermal Rehabilitation of Educational Buildings” implemented within the framework of the CoMDeP Program (Covenant of Mayors. Demonstration Programme).

While the works on insulation of 4 educational buildings have been carried out with the support of the European Union, the installation of solar panels became possible thanks to the support of GEF – UNDP Small Grants Program. Both actions aim to contribute to the overall reduction of CO2 emissions in Cantemir.
The photovoltaic panels will contribute to the production of energy needed for the educational institutions and at the same time will serve as a demonstration example for eco-energy solutions. Each installation has a nominal power of 5 kW and is connected to the distribution system through the Net Metering scheme that will allow for significant savings by compensating for electricity consumption from 20% to 80% depending on the type of premises/building.
