The government on Tuesday adopted the bill on the carbon allowance – said Minister of Climate and Environment Anna Moskwa. The one-off benefit is to amount to PLN 3,000.
It is a draft act on the carbon supplement prepared by the Ministry of Climate and Environment. “The proposed regulation aims to provide support for a large group of households in Poland, including the poorest in terms of energy, in covering part of the costs resulting from the increase in prices on the energy market, including fuel costs” – indicated the authors of the project.
Now the regulations will go to work in the Sejm.
Carbon supplement – for whom?
According to the project, the carbon allowance will amount to 3 thousand. zloty. It will be paid on a one-off basis.
The carbon allowance is to be granted to a household, if the main source of heating that household is a solid fuel boiler, fireplace, goat, air heater, kitchen stove, stove, coal stove or tiled stove for solid fuel, fueled with hard coal, briquettes or pellets containing at least 85 percent hard coal. It was stipulated that a prerequisite for obtaining a carbon allowance is obtaining an entry or reporting the heating source to the Central Emission Register of Buildings (CEEB).
According to the proposal, if more than one member of the farm applies, the supplement will be granted to the applicant who submitted the application first.
As we read on government websites, the deadline for submitting applications for the payment of the carbon allowance will expire on November 30 this year. The municipality will have a maximum of one month to pay out the money.
It has been announced that the application form for the payment of the carbon allowance will be specified in a regulation.
