Caritas Electricity saving check
This measure provides certain households with an energy audit to advise on energy efficiency improvements, as well as some basic energy saving equipment (for example LED lights). Long-time unemployed persons are trained to give the advice. Households were also given the option to buy a new energy efficient fridge against a lower price.
Households could save 130 EUR on average per year on energy costs. Over the lifespan of the provided equipment around 440,000 tons of CO2 and 275 million EUR can be safed.
