Grigor's story

Grigor lives with his family of four in Arbat village. All the family members are hard workers trying to create a better living. Grigor works at the local airport and his wife works at the maternity hospital. They are always in search of ways to improve their living conditions.

After learning about the advantages of solar power systems, the family decided to install one at their house. Grigor requested a loan, which he will use to pay for the solar power system and its installation. In the picture of their roof, the worker from the solar company is finishing thevinstallation work. Grigor is full of hope that this technology will help to cut their utility costs and move toward more sustainable consumption.
