Project idea

In the area of the city of Bottrop new district heating connections receive a financial subsidy. The campaign was extended geographically in March 2013 to the whole area of the city and extended until 31.12.2014.  If the building heat requirements amount to 15-25 kW a subsidy in the amount of  1,500 euros becomes due for payment two weeks after the commissioning of the district heating. From 26 kW building heat requirements the subsidy increases by  500 euros to 2,000 euros. Besides the connection funding by steag Fernwärme GmbH further funding from the programme can also be applied for.
