The Trust of Eco-PV, calls “TRUST ECO-PV”, established in accordance with GSE Technical Regulations and with IV and V Conto Energia, is a non-attachable and controlled fund where the Responsible Person can pay the amount of Financial Guarantee for its incentivated photovoltaic modules or the Producer – in according to Decree No. 49/2014 – can pay eco-contribution for end-of-life photovoltaic modules placed on market.
TRUST ECO-PV is a real “transparent safe”: the amount is used only for pickup, transport and treatment services of guarantee modules. Cannot be used for no other reason.
The TRUST ECO-PV is subjected to double check of flows of paid amounts, as follows:
- the Trustee, external person, with necessary requirements of professionalism and morality, manages the amount transfer from Trust to Consortium availability only when there is a need to manage the guaranteed phovoltaic modules end-of-life;
- the Guarantor, “super partes” person outside of Consorzio, with high morality and competence, who verifies fulfillment of obligations about the management of TRUST ECO-PV, and verifies fulfillment of obligations by Eco-PV.
Each amount of Financial Guarantee or eco-contribution immobilized into TRUST ECO-PV is linked to single module guaranteed, identified by serial number. Eco-PV ensures that every single module have exactly the amount paid by Responsible Person or Producer.
Also, both in case of Financial Guarantee and eco-contribution, Eco-PV issues a certificate of payment that documents the amount immobilized into Trust for every photovoltaic module identifified by its serial number.
