Can we install solar panels at home in Spain?

24 June 2019

The answer is “Yes” we can install solar panels in our home in Spain or in our apartment in through a neighbour community. After knowing the last Royal Decree of Self-consumption, in which the new regulation promises to end the sun tax and the monopoly created by preventing self-consumption and energy saving management.

In Spain there are 15,000 registered homes that have solar panel installation, a number much lower than 1,600,000 that Germany has or 800,000 that the United Kingdom has.

These numbers, taking into account that Spain is the country of the European Union with more days and hours of sunlight per year, show the difference in legislation and capacity for self-regulation with our European neighbours.

The aim of the Royal Decree on Self-consumption is to reduce CO2 emissions through the installation of solar panels at home, either individually or in neighboring communities.

The purpose of this measure is to eliminate the sun tax gradually in order to start a new stage, progressing at an environmental and social level. In this way the real estate sector will be more sustainable.

The main changes of this Royal Decree are:

It will not be necessary to own a single-family home to produce solar energy.

Elimination of the technical requirements for its installation.

Suppression of bureaucratic procedures to request the installation of solar panels.

Opening for collective use.

Creation of community regulations for these collective consumers.

In the province of Alicante, photovoltaic solar energy installations have increased 44% thanks to the tax deduction promoted by the IVACE.

You can request the application of a regional deduction in the IRPF of those people who have carried out renewable energy projects in homes throughout the Valencian Community.

The requirement to access this aid is that the taxpayer has made a renewable solar energy project of any kind in a house in the Valencian Community.

You can deduct up to 20% of the investment made in the project and also in neighborhood community facilities.

They have not established maximum limits of taxation for what any person of the Valencian Community could deduct.

The installations must be made by companies that comply with the requirements established in the regulations.

It is established that the maximum base will be € 8,000.
