In this section, the procedure of CHP support according to the mini-CHP incentive program is explained.
What needs to be done by when in order to get the CHP support?
It is particularly important to apply to the BAFA for funding before the starting a project. If this is ignored, a at an early start of the project in could result in the project being excluded from mini-CHP support.
After examination of the application by the executive authority (BAFA Eschborn), a grant decision is sent directly to the applicant. Within 9 months of application, the mini-CHP plant must be put into operation (see time horizon). After commissioning, the applicant has 2 months to submit the necessary documents of proof of use.
The disbursement of the funding is normally around 3 weeks after submission of proof of use, provided that all necessary documentation has been made available and the application is filled out correctly.
