The objective is to support and facilitate the implementation of a national program to install rooftop solar PV on residences connected to the low-voltage grid. The programme aims to create installed capacity of 200 MWp by 2020 and of 2,500 MWp by 2030, thereby helping to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions. The NAMA will support development of the solar PV market through the introduction of a net metering approach. The overall aim is to improve access to energy, support the liberalization of the introduction of renewable energy and diversify the energy mix.

The essential component of the financial mechanism is a net metering system that allows residential customers to be credited for electricity fed into the grid from their rooftop PV installations. In addition, an investment subsidy for consumers for 2015-2017, and a partial solar PV exemption from VAT for 2018-2021, will help fund consumers' purchase of solar installations. A credit line funded by international donors will be offered to local partner banks, to increase their ability to make loans for solar PV purchases. Generally, a problem here is the lack of implication of the banking sector. The sector is not involved enough in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
