KNOWLEDGE ABOUT RENEWABLE ENERGY AND HOUSEHOLD ATTITUDES TOWARD SOLAR COLLECTOR INSTALLATION

The European Uniona and Poland aim to increase the role of renewbale energy sources and suppport it through programs encouraging the installation of solar colectors. This study presents preliminary results regarding knowledge about the renewable energy sources, subsidies for solar colectors and factors influencing such decision to install colectors among residents of five villages in Lubelskie Voivodship, the region with the most suitable natural conditions for solar energy utilization. Summary of responses from 93 respondetns shows that they have an average or good knowledge about solar energy, but the majority is not familiar with the solar colector subsidy program, while the lower energy costs, return on investment and colector prices are the most imnportant factors influencing the decision to purchase and install colectors. The preliminary nature of the study suggests that general inferences based on the observed tendencies ave to be treated with caution.
