Decree 019 of 2008 provided for the immediate construction of passive solar heating systems "Trombe Walls" by the government. "Trombe walls" are a building technique where heat collecting building materials are used in sun-facing façades and heat is then transferred to the dwelling through a passive ventilation system.

The construction took place in areas of extreme poverty above 3,500m of altitude, with a budget of USD 5.5 million (15.5 million peruvian Sols).

The Decree allowed for additional support from regional governments.
