The one-stop-shop for the GRTU PVPFScheme – GRTU will this year be participating in the October Home fair
and will be accompanied by all the GRTU Approved retailers that are
participating in the GRTU PVPFScheme, in a dedicated pavilion. This will be a
great opportunity to expose the scheme to consumers and for retailers of renewable energy products to showcase their offers. The fair will take place
between the 24th and 27th of October at MFCC.
GRTU APPROVED retailers are being offered a space in the
pavilion free of charge in return for their participation in the scheme and the
effort and improvement in standards (during the sale, installation and after
sale) this has meant. Retailers participating in the scheme have undergone a
number of inspections in order to obtain this certification. The ultimate aim
is to safeguard clients by ensuring quality, increase customer satisfaction,
improve the reputation of the sector and increase consumer confidence. The
system initiated by GRTU ensures customers the best quality when purchasing a
Within the pavilion there will also be representatives of the
Ministry for Energy and the Conservation of Water and the Malta Resources
Authority who are jointly sponsoring the event and who will be providing
information to the general public.
The PVPFScheme is being offered with the support of Bank of
Valetta. The Scheme allows families to purchase their PV system over a period
of 3 years with no fees and at very advantageous interest rates, with the
remaining interest being paid by the retailer. This greatly increases the
affordability of a PV system by allowing the purchaser to pay the loan amount
without paying the interest and concurrently saving from electricity bills.
The PVPFS scheme may be applied when purchasing from GRTU
APPROVED retailers only.
