Incentive allowance for old boilers
The ministry of ‘Ecologie, Développement durable, Transports et Lodgement has updated scrapping incentive for oil and gas fired boilers older than 15 years.
A maximum incentive bonus of €1,300 is available towards the replacement of older boiler model with a new Class 5 wood-fired heating boiler. This move to improve the energy efficiency Is mainly directed at low income homes who used more than 10% of their budget on heating and water.
Retailers taking part will display a logo “prime à la casse des chaudières” and you can find a list of approved suppliers on the ministry’s website. The allowance is paid either as a one off payment or as a credit note off fuel deliveries or gas bill, and the offer is valid until the end of December 2011.
