Online applications in the My Electricity programme
In order to submit an application, one should use a trusted profile - this can be set up e.g. in electronic banking system or with the use of e-ID. Starting May 22, 2020, you can also apply via a representative.
Paper applications in the My Electricity programme were submitted until 30 March 2020. This change does not apply to PV installers NFEPWM has signed cooperation agreements with.
The electronic channel is much more efficient. The NFOŚiGW ICT system for electronic applications collecting means that applications handling is not a problem, this translates directly into the customer service pace. Therefore, we are improving the programme by excluding paper applications which have caused a serious service delay also among those who have used the electronic means. December 2019 was the final stage of the first call for application - the fund was flooded with an avalanche of incomplete or illegible paper applications. It takes us a long time to sort them out. We want to give everyone a chance to get funding for a home PV installation - explains Piotr Woźny, the President of the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management.

The My Power programme digitization has been completed
The implementation of the electronic grant applications option by proxy is the last step in the digitizing process for customer service of the My Power programme.
