Bonus curtains and solar shading 2021: measures for a green city

Curtains, shutters and various sun screens are essential to protect temperatures, let’s discover the measures for a green city

Our society is moving more and more often in the direction of a green vision, made necessary by the many abuses suffered by the environment over the past decades, and because of the need to protect the generations to come. The 2021 sun blinds and curtains bonus fits in this direction: a real incentive for anyone who intends to embrace new eco-friendly habits, but without spending a fortune. So let’s try to deepen this theme, and to understand what are all the useful measures to paint our cities green.

Sunscreens and the bonus

Curtains, shutters and various sun screens are essential to protect the internal temperatures of a house, and to avoid spending a lot of money on air conditioning. Well, from today it is possible to take advantage of a specific bonus for the installation of these accessories, which provides for a tax deduction of 50% of the expense. Expenditure that must in any case be kept within a ceiling of 60 thousand euros, as foreseen by the ecobonus itself.

In some cases it is also possible to arrive at a deduction of 110%, for example by adopting interventions capable of improving the energy efficiency class of the building by 2 levels. In this case, however, it is advisable to find out by reading the guides on the superbonus. For those who want to find out how the 2021 bonus designed for green cities works, it is possible to consult some useful insights, such as the one on the energy redevelopment of VIVI energia, for example, which explains how to intervene on buildings through works and interventions aimed at reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency. The so-called green city is a model that all Italian cities should follow, and the installation of solar shading is part of this precious process.

Other information to know

There are several cities that are moving in this direction, and others that still do not meet the needs of their citizens.

For example, reference is made to Florence, which ended up at the center of a whirlwind of proposals to make it greener and liveable. The Municipality of Florence has in fact received over 800 proposals from citizens, many concerning cycling and walking routes and the creation of green and play areas for children. The theme of green therefore seems to be of great interest to the city of Florence, above all because it is included in the list of the most polluted places on the Peninsula; the citizens’ need to enjoy their city by improving their living conditions is therefore understandable. If instead we pass to the greenest places in Italy, a mention should be made for the city of Turin, the number one for what concerns the installations of photovoltaic systems. There is currently no other city with more solar panels, and Piedmont in general is not afraid of competition from other regions.
