Are you committed to a sustainable future? We’d like to reward you. In line with the city of Zurich’s 2000-watt targets, we’ll support you with financial subsidies if you want to produce electricity or heat from renewable sources or take action to improve your energy efficiency.
Subsidies are provided by ewz as a public service on behalf of the City of Zurich, and for which ewz raises a surcharge on the grid usage fee (municipal levies) in accordance with the Electricity Supply Act.
Private individuals, companies and institutions are eligible for subsidies, provided they implement the measure in the ewz supply area, i.e. in the city of Zurich or in one of the eligible locations in the canton of the Grisons.

Funding will not be granted if work, orders, measures or analyses for properties pursuant to Art. 6 are commissioned, or construction is started, before ewz returns its decision on the funding application or extends early approval.
The 2000-watt society is an energy policy vision that combines the national efficiency targets of the Energy Strategy 2050 with the international climate goals of Paris 2015. In 2008, voters in the city of Zurich agreed to commit to the targets of the 2000-watt society, taking on a pioneering role while also supporting local value creation.
When it comes to achieving its net zero targets, the City Council focuses on measures in the city’s direct area of responsibility and action and does not use climate protection certificates. Zurich’s voters approved the new climate protection target with a clear majority of 75 per cent, and enshrined it in the municipal code.
