In the State Budget for 2017 400 million were provided to finance the government program on energy efficiency. This money should help citizens and housing cooperatives to reduce utility costs through installing new meters and radiators, replacing windows, upgrading lighting and equipping individual heating units.
For 2 years 211,000 families took part in the program and spent more than 2.7 billion for energy efficiency measures. They received about 1 billion compensation from the government.
The State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving will continue to monitor the program. If demand for housing insulation grows, the Agency will apply to the Government and Parliament to increase funding.
It should be recalled, that the energy efficiency program came into force since Oct. 2014.
