Solar energy potential in Granada
Spain is a privileged country in terms of solar radiation, since it has between 2,500 and 3,000 hours of sunshine per year. Around 300 days a year, on average, are sunny and on average it is more than 8.2 hours a day. This irradiation is not the same throughout its territory due to one of the factors such as latitude. Therefore, the annual insolation increases from north (in Galicia, Cantabrian and upper Ebro it is from 1,600 to 2,000 hours) to south (the highest values of insolation occur in Badajoz, Sevilla, Almería and Alicante).
Granada, with 3,328 hours of sunshine per year and as part of Andalucía, is among the best options for installing photovoltaic self-consumption in homes or businesses.

As we have seen, the high number of hours of sunshine per year in Granada and the high levels of solar irradiation mean that electricity production is higher than in other cities. For example, a photovoltaic installation with a power of 2.4 kWp and an inclination angle of 33° in Granada would be capable of producing up to 4,006.35 kWh per year, taking into account system losses of 14% and a annual irradiation in the plane of 2,178.12 kWh/m2. The months with the highest production in the solar installation would be June with 380.55 kWh, July with 400.16 kWh and August with 394.86 kWh.

The Red Eléctrica de España (REE) indicates that Spanish households -and therefore in Granada- 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 the electricity prices of the Granada network in 2021-2022 have averaged around €0.225/kWh (€225/MWh), so that a household without a solar energy installation that consumes monthly from the network these 270 kWh would pay around €60 per month on your bill, and around €730 for the 3,240 kWh per year in the variable part of electricity consumption.
Inclination and orientation of solar panels in Granada
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.
In Granada punctually, the average of the ideal monthly inclinations is 33º facing south so that the photovoltaic panels receive the maximum possible solar irradiation throughout the year. It would be different if you use the solar self-consumption installation during a specific period of the year, where it would be best to proceed with an angle that can optimize energy production in those months on time.

Get the most out of your solar panel installation in Granada
Granada has 5.93 kWh/m2 of Peak Solar Hour, which is equivalent to the amount of solar energy received by a square meter of surface and is one of the most profitable cities for the installation of solar panels in Spain, with tax rebates from Tax on Real Estate (IBI) and the Tax on Facilities and Constructions (ICIO).
Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in Granada
How much does a solar panel installation cost in Granada?
The price of a photovoltaic installation in Granada, 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 Granada? Are solar panels worth it?
The recovery of the investment in Granada is on average between 5 to 6 years in installations without batteries. 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 approximately 5 years. In addition, if the amount of subsidies from European funds is deducted from the initial investment, it could be amortized even more, in approximately 3 years.
How much can be saved with an installation of solar panels?
With a photovoltaic installation in Granada 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 Granada?
Normally the installation companies in Granada are in charge of managing all the procedures so that their clients do not have to worry about it, however it is good to know that there is no proper procedure to legalize the installation of solar panels since it is based on what establishes the Royal Decree of Self-consumption 244/2019.
Is there aid for the installation of solar panels in Granada in 2023?
IBI discount: %, years, uses and limitations
50% for 1 year (the first year) for residential use.
ICIO tax credit
95% in the tax on constructions and installations.
What subsidies are there and how to apply for self-consumption aid in Granada?
The subsidies from European funds are part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan and in Granada 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 Granada, the aid is managed by the Andalusian Energy Agency. You can obtain more information in the Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía. The application submission deadline is until the allocated budget or budget reallocation is exhausted, and always no later than December 31, 2023. Grants are limited and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The first batch allocated to these aids was sold out and there is already a waiting list for the new batch.
For this, the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) extends in 2022 by 505 million euros the Program of incentives for self-consumption, energy storage and thermal installations with renewables in the autonomous communities that have already exhausted the funds of the Program that they originally received and among them is the Community of Andalusia.
Other regional aid in Granada
The Andalusian Energy Agency has published in the Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía, Resolution of May 10, 2021, the reopening of incentives for energy improvement projects with solar technology, within the Program for the Sustainable Energy Development of Andalusia, co-financed with FEDER funds.
