The RetailWatt assistance program helps retailers save energy. Replace your lighting or refrigeration systems and receive direct assistance from RetailWatt. Contact us today.

The RetailWatt assistance program is available to small-scale retailers in Switzerland who replace their lighting or refrigeration systems.

Benefiting from the program

You too can benefit from the program by replacing the lighting or refrigeration systems in your retail store with energy-efficient new systems. You will thereby reduce your costs over the long term and make an important contribution to sustainability. Contact us today.

Save more, get more:

The more electricity you’ll save by replacing your lighting or refrigeration system, the more funding is available to you.

Assistance for your investment:

Thanks to the available funding, you’ll be reimbursed for up to 30 percent of your total in-vestment (maximum investment volume: CHF 300,000).

Program scope

RetailWatt provides assistance when you renew either of the following systems in your retail store:

Lighting systems:
  • Replacement of your interior lighting with new light fixtures, lamps and lighting controllers
Refrigeration systems:
  • Replacement of main refrigeration units
  • Replacement of auxiliary refrigeration units and freezers

Here’s how it works

  1. Submitting an assistance application
    Contact us before you implement your renovation measures. We’ll provide you with simple tools to record the relevant data pertaining to your old and new systems. The funding forecast shows you immediately how much financial assistance is available to you.   
  2. Measures implementation
    Replace your old systems with new efficient systems after you receive confirmation that your application for funding has been accepted.
  3. Confirmation
    Submit your final receipts to us after the renovation measures have been implemented. You will then be reimbursed for a percentage of your expenditures.


Contact us and we’ll be happy to help you apply for assistance. Complete the two-step procedure to obtain your funding.
