“The level of support remains at fifty percent of eligible expenses, the subsidy limits have been adjusted according to the current market situation. Applicants who combine the installation of a photovoltaic power plant with the implementation of insulation will receive higher support,” said Petr Valdman, director of the State Environmental Fund of the Czech Republic.
“We modified the program in such a way that it motivates all owners of family houses, above all, to complete renovations. These will bring them significant savings and increase living comfort,” said Minister of the Environment Petr Hladík (KDU-ČSL).

According to Miloš Hutník from the company Weber, Saint-Gobain, it turned out that up to eighty percent of subsidies in New Green Savings are aimed at installing energy-saving technologies, especially photovoltaic panels on the roofs of family houses.
“At the same time, a number of people installed photovoltaics even on houses with a high energy demand. However, such solutions do not make much economic or ecological sense, because the greatest savings in energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions are brought about by reducing the energy demand of buildings, i.e. primarily their complete insulation,” said Hutník, adding that the change makes sense.
Ten billion more
According to him, subsidies of a similar type should be used with maximum efficiency and with the aim of reducing emissions due to lower energy consumption. “However, as a result, they will also be beneficial for the applicants, who will save much more in the long term than in the case of simply purchasing energy-saving technologies,” he stated.
In addition, the Ministry of the Environment increased the financial support of households for the subsidy program by another ten billion crowns from the Modernization Fund. According to him, this will ensure support for another fifty thousand households.
The changes do not apply to the Repair Grandma’s House call, NZÚ Light or calls to support apartment buildings.
