To promote economic recovery in some sectors, the Basque Government has launched several renewal plans, including those dedicated to the change of windows and household appliances, which have a budget of 2.5 million euros each. The beneficiaries will receive up to 25% of the total cost of the new glazing, with a limit of 1,500 euros. Thanks to the plan for the renovation of electrical appliances in the home, approximately 25,000 household appliances are expected to be replaced by others with high energy efficiency.
