Samenvatting

In 2018, a survey was conducted among 102 citizens in Suriname to evaluate their perception of photovoltaic (PV) systems. Nearly 75% of the respondents were aware of the possibility of generating electricity with PV systems and their related benefits, while, 25% of the respondents lacked knowledge about PV systems. Close to 65% of the respondents are not willing to install residential PV systems because of the high investment costs and the relatively low electricity tariffs by the national grid. For sustainability and economic savings, 26% of the respondents are willing to install a PV system. It could be concluded that despite of awareness of PV systems, their perceived high initial cost and locally low electricity prices are barriers to a broad dissemination of PV systems in Suriname.
