Did you know that since March 2016, public subsidies have been available to many people, enabling some energy saving companies to offer LED bulb packs to low-income households? If your earnings do not exceed a certain threshold, here’s how to get them.
Several companies specialized in the field of energy saving have embarked on the niche, the aim being to distribute as many packs as possible to recover the most subsidies for them. But no worry for you: the offer is quite serious and recommendable. The government has forced energy providers to spend 900 million euros over three years to finance programs to reduce energy consumption for the benefit of the most modest households.
