The investment support corresponded to SEK 2.50/kWh/year of the production of the solar panels, calculated in terms of heat exchange. The investment subsidy was limited to a maximum of SEK 7 500 per apartment building, and a maximum of SEK 3 million per project. Funding was disbursed through provincial governments. Solar thermal collectors had to meet certain quality standards to qualify for the support, and had to be installed by a professional. The scheme ended in 2011. A total of SEK 77.4 million was disbursed.
