Solar energy potential in Extremadura
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 thing happens 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 the high solar irradiation of 5.7 kWh/m2.
In fact, in Spain, the highest values of insolation are found in Badajoz (Extremadura), Sevilla, Almería and Alicante. As a result, the photovoltaic energy production of homes and businesses in this Community is 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 angle of inclination of 35° and a loss of 14%, the annual production of photovoltaic energy in Extremadura is 7,686.49 kWh. The months with the highest production are July with 803.63 kWh and August with 788.38 kWh of production. In addition, with this example, we would obtain an annual irradiation in the plane of 2,087.9 kWh/m2.

In Extremadura, 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 Extremadura
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, the less the angle of inclination of the panels will be, since the sun's rays will strike perpendicularly.
The perfect inclination in Extremadura to achieve maximum performance of the solar panels should be about 34º-35º and the orientation towards the south. Solar panels facing south in Extremadura 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 home's own electricity consumption.
Extremadura's average temperature

The dominant climate in Extremadura is the Mediterranean, softened by the maritime air masses coming from the Atlantic.
The average annual temperatures are between 16°C and 17°C. In the north of Extremadura, the average temperatures, 13°C, are lower than in the south, 18°C, and the values gradually rise as you go south until you reach the surroundings of Sierra Morena, where they decrease with altitude.
The average temperature reached in summer is 26ºC. This data is beneficial for solar panels because their maximum performance occurs at a temperature of about 25ºC.

Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in Extremadura
What is the price of a solar panel installation in Extremadura?
The price of a photovoltaic installation in Extremadura, 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 Extremadura? Are solar panels worth it?
The recovery of the investment in Extremadura 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 the 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, Extremadura is a profitable option for solar panels.
How much can be saved with a solar panel installation?
With a photovoltaic installation in Extremadura you can save approximately 60% and up to 70% on your electricity bill (in the variable part of it, referring to electricity consumption).
What procedures and/or permits are needed for photovoltaic installations in Extremadura?
Normally the installation companies in Extremadura are in charge of managing all the procedures so that their clients do not have to worry about it. Likewise, the processing and legalization of photovoltaic installations in Spain and thus in Extremadura, has been greatly facilitated since the entry into force of Royal Decree 244/2019.
Is there aid for the installation of solar panels in Extremadura in 2023?
IBI discount: %, years, uses and limitations
Within Extremadura, for the installation of solar panels in Badajoz, you can obtain a discount of up to 30% of the full amount of the tax for 5 years, depending on each municipality. For example, in Don Benito 30% for 5 years and in Mérida up to 10% for 1 year.
On the other hand, the province of Cáceres is not eligible for the IBI discount.
ICIO tax credit
You can get a discount of up to 95% of the full amount of the tax on buildings and installations, depending on the City Council. Some give only 50%.
What subsidies are there and how to request aid for self-consumption in Extremadura?
The subsidies from European funds are part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan and in Extremadura they include aid of €600 for each kWp of the installation and €490 for each kW of battery. These aids are intended for installations with a maximum of 10 kWp and those installations that exceed this peak power have lower amounts in terms of aid. For municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants, these amounts may be higher.
In the case of Extremadura, the aid is managed by the General Directorate of Industry, Energy and Mines, Extremadura Energy Agency. Applications are processed through the Electronic Office of the Junta de Extremadura on its website: https://sede.gobex.es/SEDE/. We leave you here the publication in the Official Gazette of Extremadura.
