Subsidy for new appliances

On the 15th of March 2011 the “Plan Renove Eléctrodomesticos” is open again. This is a yearly campaign which wants to stimulate the consumer to change his old appliances for new, more enery economical ones. The purchase of refrigerators, freezers, ovens and dishwashers with Energy label A en AA is rewarded by a subsidy up to 125 €.

How does it work? Find a retailer that cooperates with the campaign en buy one of the aforementioned goods. In the shop you will see which articles can be chosen, as well as the normal price and the reduced price (including the subsidy). The seller will charge you the reduced price and you must fill in a couple of forms (you need an N.I.E. number for this!). You also need to hand in the old appliance that is substituted, this will be picked up by the seller that delivers your new one. On the website, under “Consumo” > “Plan Renove” you will find a list of all the shops that cooperate.

This promotions goes for the whole of Spain, you’ll find details and specifications for your own Comunidad Autónoma on the corresponding websites.

The campaign is open until further notice, basicly this means that when the subsidy money is running out, the closure will be announced in the official State Papers (B.O.E.).

From the 13th of April 2011 a similar campaign will start for air conditioning equipment.
