Finally, the Ministry of Environment and Energy, today proceeded with the pre-publication of the new subsidy program for photovoltaic systems, which include a storage system (battery).

Although the opening date has not yet been announced, it is expected within April.

Solar Subsidy Program Specifications

The “Photovoltaics on the roof” Program grants households for the installation of PV systems with a storage system and farmers for the installation of PV systems with or without a storage system for self-consumption with the application of energy offset

The maximum eligible installed power of photovoltaic systems per installation within the Program to be financed is set at 10.8kW.

The battery must have a minimum installed capacity equal to the installed production capacity of the photovoltaic plant in kWh, with a maximum capacity of 10.8 KWh.

Photovoltaic subsidy process

The funding application is submitted through an appropriate DEDDIE electronic platform using the applicant’s taxisnet codes. The data that the applicant must submit, in addition to the PV power and battery capacity, are

  • his individual or family income
  • unique email account
  • income tax statement
  • certificate of a professional farmer or proof of registration as a special status farmer, for those eligible in the Farmers Category,
  • The special categories are the corresponding documents, such as Disability Certification or Multi-Technical Qualification
