Is it possible to pay in installments under the scope of the program?

What are the limits per applicant and per building/autonomous unit?

Only individuals who are owners and permanently reside in the property are considered eligible. Each recipient is entitled to a maximum total incentive of 7,500€ (seven thousand five hundred euros) per building / autonomous unit, minus the amounts supported in the 2nd phase of the previous More Sustainable Buildings Support Program.


Is a separate invoice required for the equipment purchase?

It's not mandatory. However, it is necessary for all costs to be itemized on the invoice.
