Second wave of subsidies for green heating project


Czechs willing to replace their old stoves with pellet stoves for burning biomass will be able to draw state subsidies within a second wave of a government project in aid of environmental heating. State support for the purchase of a pellet stove will reach 127,500 crowns, covering up to 80 percent of the cost. According to Environment Minister Richard Brabec, 3.4 billion crowns have been earmarked for the project and the money should help purchase 35,000 environmentally-friendly stoves.
