Financing of eco-installations

Current grants:

The aim of the programme My Current is subsidies for photovoltaicsto increase Poles' interest in alternative sources of electricity generation. Today, the programme looks slightly different than before, as subsidy for photovoltaics 2023 includes not only panels, but also all kinds of systems created for the storage, production, consumption of energy and heat pumps.

Subsidies for photovoltaics are aimed at individuals who have a contract with a Distribution Network Operator for a photovoltaic micro-installation. Financial support can also be sought for equipment to store electricity and heat at the same location as the electricity is produced. This way, you do not have to use the general grid. In addition My Current 5.0 provides funding for equipment to manage the electricity generated.

My Electricity 5.0 is aimed at prosumers who, as at the date of application, have a connected photovoltaic micro-installation with a capacity of between 2 kWh and 10 kWh and are billed for the electricity they produce through a system of net-billing.

The premise of the fifth photovoltaic subsidy is to go beyond the photovoltaic panels themselves, i.e. to reach people who do not want to be dependent on the general electricity grid in any way. They can ensure the stable operation of their appliances and rationally manage the electricity generated. This also raises awareness of the use of home appliances and contributes to an environmentally friendly lifestyle.

The essence of the programme is to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by replacing heat sources and improving the energy efficiency of single-family residential buildings.

The tool to achieve the objective is to subsidise projects implemented by beneficiaries eligible for the basic subsidy level, beneficiaries eligible for the increased subsidy level and beneficiaries eligible for the highest subsidy level.

The beneficiaries were divided into three groups:

Group one: Persons declaring an annual income of less than PLN 100 000. They are entitled to receive a PLN 25,000 grant. 

Group two: Persons whose average monthly income per family member does not exceed PLN 1,564 (in the case of multi-family households) or PLN 2,189 (in the case of single-person households). Such persons can count on a subsidy of PLN 32,000.

Group three: Persons whose average monthly income per family member does not exceed PLN 900 (in the case of multi-family households) or PLN 1,260 (in the case of single-person households). Such persons can count on a subsidy of PLN 60,000.

All owners and co-owners of a single-family house can benefit from the thermal modernisation allowance. Even if the house has more than one owner, each owner has a tax deduction of up to £53,000.

The amount of the deduction applies to the taxpayer, not to the property he owns. Therefore, if we own 3 single-family buildings in which we have carried out thermal modernisation, the amount of the deduction will be a total of PLN 53,000, not PLN 53,000 for each building. 

When deducting the allowance, it is important to rely on the VAT invoices for the thermo-modernisation expenses. It is important to collect only invoices, from the year to which your tax return relates. Once you have added up the amount from all the invoices, you must include it in your return (deduct it from your income or revenue). You complete the data in in the PIT/O document, in part B., in the field "Expenditure on the realisation of a thermal modernisation project".

What can be deducted with the thermal modernisation allowance?

The condition to benefit from the relief is to spend the funds on projects that reduce energy consumption. Such expenditure includes, among others:

  • photovoltaic installation and accessories (also in combination with other programmes or subsidies)
  • connection to gas and district heating networks
  • installation of electric, gas, oil heating
  • photovoltaic panel or solar collector with accessories
  • heat pump installation
  • replacement of doors and windows (roof, balcony, non-opening), garage doors and their dedicated installation systems
  • Insulation and modernisation of the building (including roof), implementation of ventilation, recuperation
  • insulation and damp-proofing materials for building partitions, balcony slabs, foundations and for the electric heating system and heating installation
  • building energy efficiency audit and design documentation
