Solar energy potential in Badajoz

As we well know, the same amount of photovoltaic energy is not produced in the north of Europe as in the south of the continent, and the same occurs in Spain with respect to the cities of the north and those of the south. Extremadura is a privileged Autonomous Community thanks to the number of hours of sunshine (3,300), and within it, Badajoz has 3,224 hours of sunshine per year.

In fact, in Spain, the highest values of insolation occur in Badajoz, Sevilla, Almería and Alicante. In the first, the high solar irradiation is 5.74 kWh/m2. This results in the production of photovoltaic energy from homes and companies in Badajoz being high and, therefore, its solar energy potential.

As we can see in the graph, if we consider a system with, for example, 4.8 kWp of installed power, with an inclination angle of 34° and a loss of 14%, the annual production of photovoltaic energy in Badajoz is 7,729 .79 kWh. The months with the highest production are July with 809.45 kWh and August with 792.74 kWh of production. In addition, with this example, we would obtain an annual irradiation on the plane of 2,104.04 kWh/m2.

In Badajoz, the Red Eléctrica de España (REE) indicates that Spanish households consume an average of 9 kWh per day and approximately 270 kWh per month, which represents about 3,240 kWh/year. In addition, the REE has also indicated that electricity prices from the network in 2021-2022 have averaged around €0.225/kWh (€225/MWh), so that a household without a solar energy system that consumes monthly from the network these 270 kWh would pay around €60 per month on your bill, in the variable part of electricity consumption.

Inclination and orientation of solar panels in Badajoz

In Spain, the ideal average inclination of the panels varies between 20º and 40º since it is directly related to the latitude of the country. The closer a city is to the Equator line, the angle of inclination of the panels will be less, since the sun's rays will fall perpendicularly.

The perfect inclination in Badajoz to achieve maximum performance from the solar panels should be around 34º and facing south. South facing solar panels in Badajoz will produce the most energy, but if you want to place the modules facing east or west it is also worth it, especially if you need to cover electricity needs at home or business in the morning or in the afternoon, increasing the household's self-consumption of electricity.

Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in Badajoz

What is the price of a solar panel installation in Badajoz?

The price of a photovoltaic installation in Badajoz, and as usually happens anywhere, depends on the type of installation, size of the system, its components, registration and legalization procedures. Considering all the necessary materials: panels, inverter, wiring and installation costs such as labor for a single-family home that requires 10 panels, the approximate price would be €6,000 and €8,000 for 15 panels.

Is a photovoltaic installation profitable in Badajoz? Are solar panels worth it?

The recovery of the investment in Extremadura in general, is between 4 and 6 years. If none of the bonuses (IBI and ICIO) are accessed, the amortization would be made in 6 years, but if aid is available, the investment would be recovered in around 4 years or less. Within the Autonomous Community, the recovery time will vary according to the Province.

Thanks to its geographical location, its temperature and the large number of hours of sunshine per year, Badajoz is a profitable option for solar panels.

Normally the installation companies in Badajoz are in charge of managing all the procedures so that their clients do not have to worry about it.
