The founding general meeting of the Guri Citizen Sunlight Power Cooperative
[구리=뉴시스]Reporter Lee Ho-jin = Guri City, Gyeonggi Province, is promoting the Guri-type Green New Deal as a policy to respond to climate crises and environmental issues, and the first citizen-participating solar power plant establishment project in Guri will begin in earnest from March.

According to the Guri Citizen Sunlight Generation Cooperative Promotion Committee (hereinafter referred to as the Committee) on the 12th, the committee held the inaugural general meeting of the Guri Citizens Sunlight Power Generation Cooperative to promote the citizen-participating solar power generation project on December 21 last year and aimed to recruit members in March. The establishment process is in progress.

The citizen-participating solar power plant establishment project has a differentiation in that it minimizes environmental hazards by participating in the Guri Sustainable Development Council and citizens, unlike some private solar power projects, which are problematic due to damage to the mountain.

The committee plans to complete all the procedures for establishing a cooperative by next month, such as registration and business registration, and to start a full-fledged business, and build three 100-150kW solar power plants by the end of the year.

To this end, the Promotion Committee has requested a review of a paid use permit for the available shared property suitable for the construction of a solar power plant in Guri.

As interest in new and renewable energy has increased through various energy education in the Guri area, expectations are being raised as to whether it will be possible to present a differentiated business model with local communities ahead of the full-scale business.

Guri Mayor Ahn Seung-nam, co-chair of the Guri Sustainable Development Council, has argued for the need to build a citizen-led sunlight power plant since the days of Gyeonggi-do lawmakers.

An official from the Promotion Committee of the Guri Citizen Sunlight Generation Cooperative said, “We are promoting the project by benchmarking the case of the Ansan Citizen Sunlight Power Generation Cooperative, which was successfully operated by establishing a solar power plant with the investment of a citizen member. I will try to become an exemplary cooperative that can contribute to the local community, including support.”
