Home energy savings

Εξοικονόμηση κατ΄οίκον

 

The aim of the “Home energy savings” plan is to reduce the energy needs of buildings. For this reason, incentives for energy saving interventions are provided to the household sector.

With the “Home energy savings”plan, owners of detached houses / apartments can reduce their heating expenses, saving up to 70% of the cost of the relative works that are subsidised (selected interventions) without the need for the issue of a works permit by the town planning service.

Works that are subsidised (selected interventions):

  • Installation of external thermal insulation (building envelope).
  • Insulation of rooftops / roofs.
  • Replacement of door / window frames and shading systems.
  • Upgrading / replacement of heating – cooling systems.

 

The plan concerns residences that:

  • Are located within a price zone that is lower than or equal to €2,100 / square metre.
  • Have been classified, on the basis of the Energy Performance Certificate, into a category that is lower than or equal to a D category.
  • Have a building permit or legalising documents.
  • Have not been scheduled for demolition.

For example, if the cost of your energy upgrading works is €10,000, you will be required to pay ONLY €3,000, provided you meet the relative income criteria. The remaining cost of the works is subsidised by the plan.

Percentage of subsidy based on declared income (income criteria):
