ProKilowatt is offering a 70-franc discount on eligible appliances from the household sector. Simply enter voucher code «FORDERBEITRAG70» in the payment section when placing your order. The discount is automatically deducted. The voucher cannot be combined with other promotions.

Together with Topten, ProKilowatt (a support programme funded by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy) aims to promote the purchase of large, energy-efficient household appliances.

To many consumers, Topten is known for labelling of products with high energy efficiency, low environmental impact and good quality. And now, thanks to Topten Logo and the «eligible» filter, you can easily see which devices in our store will reduce your environmental impact.

The federal government wants to promote the purchase of energy-efficient appliances as well, and is providing around 2.7 million Swiss francs in subsidies for just this purpose. With the support of Topten, ProKilowatt will give you a 70-franc discount when purchasing any eligible product. Funding continues until all grant funds are used nationally.

Life is always about opposites. As Senior Category Business Manager at Galaxus, I’m in charge of indoor climate products among other things. After all, air conditioners and fans create a cool atmosphere :) However, things are a bit more heated in my private life. My two great passions are tennis and my little daughter.
