Sunrise Begins in Artsakh: 12 Families Will Get Free Hot Water from the Sun
August 23, 2022
Installation of 12 solar water heaters provided by the Shtigen Group in Artsakh was completed. The project was implemented within the framework of the Sunrise in Artsakh project, which was initiated by the Shtigen Group, a group of companies specializing in the sector of the latest energy.
The goal of the Sunrise in Artsakh project is to establish energy independence in Artsakh by using solar energy.
“Our goal is to reach the point where every house in Artsakh has its own solar plant and water heater. In this way, we will ensure the energy independence and security of Artsakh, that is, in the event of gas supply interruptions due to enemy aggression, the population of Artsakh will not only continue to have hot water and electricity, but also will not overload the power grid, and there will be no power outages,” says the founding director of Shtigen Group Hayk Shekyan.
The Sunrise in Artsakh project was launched in April of this year, calling on our compatriots and the world, in general, to join the initiative to contribute not only to the restoration of the post-war settlement but also to the preservation of the environment and the saving of the planet’s resources through solar technologies.
The Shtigen Group provided and installed solar water heaters for free, sending its specialists to Artsakh. The list of beneficiaries has been drawn up, giving priority at this stage to persons who died in the Artsakh wars, disabled persons, and families with many children. They will have free hot water in the next 20 years.
“We are aware that we have initiated a program that requires a large financial investment, enormous efforts, and unrelenting consistency. However, we are sure that this project of strategic importance is feasible, and we are starting the implementation with our decisive step,” Hayk Shekyan notes.
