Financing energy efficiency improvements


There are various ways of financing measures to make your home more energy efficient. We would of course be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each option with you.

Financial incentives

The government promotes sustainability with financial incentives for sustainable investments. For example, you can often apply for a subsidy to make your home more energy efficient. You can also apply for a VAT rebate on your solar panels from the Dutch tax authority (Belastingdienst).
