This photovoltaic system was built in partnership with the public administration of Villanova d'Asti and was designed to remove asbestos from the roof of the elementary school. Its power is about 88.50 kWp (corresponding to 354 modules of 250 Wp) and part of the system is fully integrated in the roof. It was connected to the national grid in March 2013 with a 20-year incentives agreement.

Energia Positiva is a brand new Italian REScoop based in Torino. Founded at the end of 2015, it wants to provide local citizens with a completely new idea of energy self-production and consumption. The cooperative issues energetic plant shares and develops renewable energy projects in the whole country. Members thus become co-owners of the projects and get access to clean energy from local sources. Energia Positiva manages the administration. The cooperative provides members with a financial return under the form of discount on their energy bill. The initial investment of the members is then refunded whenever the installation has ended its economic life. Energia Positiva believes that anyone should get access to renewable energy from local sources, not only those who can afford PV panels on their roof. At the same time, the cooperative acts against pollution and global warming. Actually it is made of 90 associates able to invest more than 700K euros in 5 different projects across the Italian country.
