Frequently asked questions about solar panels installation
What is a solar panel installation?
The installation of solar panels is the process of placing the fixed solar panels on the roof or surface to be installed.
What components are taken into account when installing solar panels?
Photovoltaic installations are made up of different elements that must be installed, such as the photovoltaic panels, the solar inverter, the monitoring system, the bidirectional meter and batteries in the case of installations with storage.
How do I know what type of installation I need?
To find out what type of photovoltaic system you need, it is best to measure the daily energy consumption, differentiating the hours of such consumption. This is useful to know precisely if the consumption is carried out during the hours of greatest solar radiation or during the hours of least available sunshine.
How to install solar panels?
After installing the photovoltaic panels, the system is connected to the inverter and the inverter is connected to the electrical panel of the house or company. Finally, the batteries are connected in the case of installations that have these storage devices.
Is it cost-effective to install solar panels on a house?
The answer is yes. The installation of solar panels in your home or business is profitable for several reasons. You will not spend so much money buying electricity from your electricity supplier, which allows you to generate savings on your electricity bill (in the variable part referring to your consumption); because of the affordable prices of the panels on the market; because of their low maintenance and the long useful life of the installation; and because of the economic aid that exists in 2023. All this means that you can quickly amortise your investment.
Can I install solar panels in a flat or building?
Yes, it is possible. Keep in mind that as it is a communal plot, there are bylaws of the community of neighbours. In addition, some legal requirements must be fulfilled and the necessary permits must first be obtained in order to install this type of renewable energy.
How much does it cost to install solar panels?
The price of a photovoltaic installation for a single-family house is currently around €1 per kWh of annual consumption (between 0.8 and 1.4). So, for example, for a house with a consumption of 5,000 kWh per year, the price of the installation will be between 4,000 and 7,000 € approximately.
Why are there different prices for the installation of solar panels?
The different prices that exist on the market are mainly due to the quality of the components that are installed and the installation process itself. They are also subject to the m2 of panels to be installed and the characteristics of the installation.
What is included in the price of the installation of solar panels?
The price of the photovoltaic installation for a single-family house is mainly based on the price of the panels and the solar inverter. These amount to approximately 3/4 of the total price of the installation (75%), to which must also be added the labour costs of the solar panel installation companies, meters, monitoring system, wiring and permits.
What is the legal framework in Spain for the installation of solar energy?
The Royal Decree 244/19 (in 2019) has been the great change in law in which taxes and fees for solar energy have been eliminated (the famous "sun tax" that was in force until that date) and has also made it possible to benefit from compensation for energy surpluses, install solar panels in buildings and neighbourhood communities (shared self-consumption), and has made bureaucratic procedures simpler.
What to do if I have surplus energy in my photovoltaic system?
The surplus energy generated by the solar panels that you do not use instantaneously for your consumption can be stored in a battery - if you have one - or fed into the electricity grid and receive financial compensation for it.
What is the price for surplus energy from my installation?
The price of the surplus energy that you have not consumed is around 5 cents (0.05€/kWh) on average, as it depends on the supplier that you have contracted for the electricity grid.
Are there any subsidies or grants for the installation of solar panels?
There are bonuses with which you can make your self-consumption installation profitable and save up to 50% of IBI (Real Estate Tax) for 5 years and 95% of ICIO (Tax on Constructions, Installations), depending on each City Council. In addition, at national level, the Government has extended by 2022, €650 million in aid from the European Funds (NextGeneration EU) earmarked for solar self-consumption.
What is the subsidy from European funds for the installation of panels?
The government grants, among others, a total of up to € 600 per installed peak watt. These subsidies represent a very interesting direct reduction in the investment of a photovoltaic system.
What is the time limit for awarding grants from European funds?
The responsible body of each Autonomous Community has a maximum period of 6 months from the time of the application to accept or reject it. In the case of acceptance, it has a maximum period of 18 months to grant the subsidy for the installation of solar panels for self-consumption.
