How does it work?

With a voucher of up to €730.00 you can replace an old refrigerator, fridge-freezer, washing machine or dryer with a more energy-efficient appliance. An energy coach will also visit you. That way, you consume less energy and reduce your energy bills. A total of €1,687,500 is available for this grant. Grants will be made as long as there is budget available.


  • You have applied for and received an energy allowance from the City of Leeuwarden. This may also be an approximately the same energy allowance, for example energy allowance from another municipality or from DUO.
    • Have you applied for the energy allowance but not received it? If so, you are not eligible.
  • If you did not or could not apply for the energy allowance, the following applies:
    • Do you have an income of less than 150% of the Social Minimum? If so, you may also be eligible. This is the cases, for example, if you have only just started receiving benefits.
    • The limits of 150% of the Social Minimum 2023 are:
      • Single annual income: a gross annual income of less than €25,350. This is a gross monthly amount of €2,113.
      • Married/cohabiting annual income: a gross annual income of less than €35,908. This is a gross monthly amount of €2,993.
    • You show your income to the energy coach when they come by for the energy coach interview.
  • You live in a property with a low energy label: B, C, D, E, F or G. On www.energielabel.nl you can look up which label your house has.
    • If no energy label is known, check how old the property is. The house must have been built before 2002.
  • The old appliance is 10 years old or more. Or the old appliance has energy label B, C or D according to old energy labelling system. You trade in your old device.
  • You can choose a table model refrigerator, table model freezer, higher refrigerator or fridge-freezer combination, washing machine or heat pump dryer.
  • You can claim this grant once per address. Have you ever received white goods? Then you will not receive another device.
  • If you apply for this subsidy, an Energy Coach will visit you to see what else you can save on in your home. This advice is free for you.

How to apply?

  • Make an appointment with the Energy Coach for a consultation. This can be done in 3 ways:
  • The Energy Coach will visit your home to check whether you meet the conditions. If so, they will go through the application with you. The Energy Coach will then give you a voucher.
  • With the voucher you can choose an economical refrigerator in the store worth € 730.00. You save the most energy with a refrigerator with an A label. It may only be an energy-efficient appliance with a minimum energy label D. For a higher refrigerator, the energy label may also be E.
  • Do you want a more expensive device? If so, you will have to pay the difference in price yourself at the shop.
  • Hand in the voucher and arrange delivery at the shop.
  • The delivery service delivers the new device and immediately takes the old device away. The delivery costs of € 20.00 are free for you.
  • A number of devices have been funded by the European Union – Interreg. That is why these devices have an EU sticker.
