Efficiency bonus

Whether you’re aiming to meet the requirements of cantonal law for wholesale electricity or the federal Energy and CO2 Law, or you want to save energy on a voluntary basis, we can help you achieve your efficiency targets.


  • Consumption locations are in the ewz supply area in the city of Zurich or Grisons, or in the municipalities in Grisons that are eligible for benefits with a rate that is applicable for a total purchase of more than 60,000 kWh per year. If you conclude and implement a target agreement, you benefit from an efficiency bonus of CHF 0.013 per kWh of purchased active energy.
  • The target agreement contains a target path. This is where you define how you would like to increase your energy efficiency or reduce your relative energy consumption. The term of these agreements is generally 10 years. To stay on the target path, you must implement the agreed measures within this time period.
