The Government will earmark Sk100 million for solar energy

Slovak Economy Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek wants to submit a proposal, through which homes that decide to buy solar panels will be entitled to state subsidies.

Such subsidies would be a novelty in Slovakia, though homes in Austria and the Czech Republic have been receiving them for several years already.

The Economy Ministry thinks solar energy has the biggest potential out of all renewable energy sources in Slovakia.
