The Ger Plug-In is a permanent house that provides the ger with
everything it does not have: a toilet; a shower; an electric heating system and increased thermal insulation.
To make it more affordable to residents, the Ger Plug-In is incremental.
It can be built in two stages to reduce initial investment costs. The first prototype was built in 2017 and was proven to perform environmentally 23% better than required by Mongolian building regulations. Over the winter the residents consume 93% less coal. If each of the 163,000 ger
useholds was replaced by a Ger Plug-In this would result in an estimated saving of 576,042 tons of coal per year.
