By Rashid Shirinov – Trend:

Ten farms in the Pavlodar region of Kazakhstan, which purchased solar panels this year, submitted applications for a program of subsidizing agricultural producers.

This was stated at a meeting of the Investment Subsidy Commission, chaired by the deputy governor of the region, Dauren Makhazhanov, the Kazakh media reported.

At the meeting, director of a company supplying solar panels, Murat Sabirov, noted that in recent years the solar panels have become popular among the Pavlodar farmers who are engaged in cattle breeding.

"Provided that a farmer himself bought and installed a solar panel in his territory, 80 percent of its cost is returned to him," Sabirov said.

In total, the Investment Subsidy Commission considered 178 applications, of which 166 were approved.
