The Technical Support
The technician and the checks are paid by the REScoop. The members have the choice or not after the first check to change their district heating unit if necessary. The REScoop will then support the member to find an installer and to make the right choice of heating unit.
The Cooperative in Denmark is paying for each addition heating degree (26 889 euros) when sending water back to the TSO. Therefore, it is more efficient for the cooperative to facilitate the refurbishing of the district heating units of the members. This is especially true for the energy poor members. Therefore, the cooperative has been offering payment plans and incentives to support the vulnerable members of the community.
