Program for promoting NRE deployment
1 million green homes program

In an effort to encourage NRE deployment, the government has initiated programs to provide subsidy to install PV system for private residential houses, multi-family houses and public rental houses. After completing the overall feasibility studies successfully, the program took off as the new formal program in 2004. The government plans to deploy 100,000 PV system in residential houses.

The status of 100,000 Solar-roof deployment program

Classification 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Total
The No. of PV house 310 907 5,964 7,317 9,142 23,640
Capacity (kW) 771 2,356 7,337 9,245 10,495 30,204
Subsidy (Million KRW) 6,300 15,764 48,920 48,997 48,942 168,923

The basic plan for the program is to develop 3kW system for residential houses, to produce solar cell domestically with high efficiency as well as low cost, and to foster NRE facility enterprises in the long run.

This year, the 100,000 Solar-roof deployment program was merged into a 1 million Green Homes program.

The Government will support a certain portion of total installation cost. In 2008, the main target was to equip with PVs in houses.

However, the 1 million Green Homes program has focused on a variety of resources such as PVs, Solar thermal, Geo-thermal, Small wind and Bio.

In addition, there are several types of home which range from detached houses to apartment houses.
