Over 43,000 Apply for Home Solar Panel, Heating Upgrade Subsidies


More than 43,000 households have applied for over 200 billion forints (EUR 505m) in government subsidies to install home solar panels and energy-efficient heating systems, Technology and Industry Ministry state secretary for energy Attila Steiner said on Wednesday.


Interest for the subsidies, launched in December, was “unprecedented”, Steiner said. Winners will get up to 2.9 million forints to install solar panels and as much as 11.3 million forints to upgrade heating systems. The subsidies, which targeted mostly households with below-average income, are being pre-financed by the government pending the approval of Hungary’s Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) plan in Brussels, Steiner said.
