The program envisages the possibility of subsidizing projects involving the purchase/leasing of new zero-emission vehicles of categories M1, M2, M3, N1, L1e, L2e, L3e, L4e, L5e, L6e, L7e using for propulsion only electricity accumulated by connection to an external power source or electricity generated from hydrogen in fuel cells installed in it, or only the engine, whose duty cycle does not lead to emissions of greenhouse gases or other substances covered by the greenhouse gas emissions management system referred to in the Law of July 17, 2009. on the system for managing emissions of greenhouse gases and other substances (Journal of Laws of 2020, item 1077). The aim of the program is to avoid emissions of air pollutants by subsidizing projects to reduce the consumption of emission fuels in transport - support for the purchase/leasing of zero-emission vehicles.

Financial data

The funding for the "My Electrician" project comes 50 percent from the EU program, with the remainder coming from the fuel tax. The program's budget has been set at up to PLN 500,000,000 (109,926,350.00 EUR) for non-refundable forms of subsidies, of which at least 50% will be transferred as part of the provision of funds to banks in accordance with Article 411 (10) of the Environmental Protection Law for the purpose of providing subsidies. The program provides for subsidies in the form of grants or subsidies from funds made available to banks for the purpose of subsidizing fees set in leasing contracts, as defined in Article 411 (1)(2)(e) of the Environmental Protection Law.


The program and its method of financing, as well as the simple procedure for obtaining subsidies, can be a good example of encouraging individuals, entrepreneurs, local governments, NGOs to use zero-emission means of transport, which is very important in the face of the growing climate crisis.
