Solar energy potential in La Coruña
Galicia has from 2,450 to 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, depending on the location within the Autonomous Community. We can compare this potential of La Coruña (2,453 hours) with that of some northern European cities where solar energy is normal, such as Berlin and Amsterdam. The latter have 1,728 and 1,662 hours of sunshine per year, respectively, therefore the photovoltaic capacity that La Coruña has is usable since the solar energy potential is greater than these main European capitals! 💪☀️

To calculate the photovoltaic production in La Coruña, let us take as an example a solar installation with 4.8 kWp of installed power, where the system will have an optimum inclination of 37º to the south, and the result will give us an annual photovoltaic energy production of 6,517.64 kWh, with a loss of 14% of the system. The months of greatest production are June, July and August with 655.84; 742.42 and 730.49 kWh, respectively.

According to the Red Eléctrica de España (REE), Spanish households -and therefore in La Coruña- consume an average of 9 kWh per day and approximately 270 kWh per month, which represents about 3,240 kWh/year.
Grid's electricity prices in 2021-2022 have averaged around €0.225/kWh (€225/MWh). A household in Galicia without a photovoltaic energy system on the roof that consumes 270 kWh per month would pay around €60 on average per month in the variable part of the electricity bill referring to consumption.
Inclination and orientation in La Coruña
In Spain, the ideal average inclination of solar panels varies between 20° and 40°, and it is a concept that is closely linked to the latitude of the country. The closer it is to the equator, the lower the angle of inclination of the panels, since the sun's rays will strike perpendicularly. The inclination of most homes in Spain is between 20° and 35°.
Solar panels for self-consumption facing south in La Coruña with an optimum inclination of 37° will produce the greatest amount of electricity.

Get the most out of your solar panel installation in Galicia
In Galicia there are local grants such as the IBI (Real Estate Tax) discount and the ICIO (Construction and Installation Tax) discount, in addition to aid and subsidies from European funds for solar self-consumption (NextGeneration EU).
In addition, let us take into account its temperate climate and its temperatures, together with the amount of solar energy that a square meter of surface in La Coruña receives, or Peak Solar Hour (HSP) peak is 4.3 kWh/m2 on average. All these factors are beneficial to have an interesting photovoltaic production.
Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in La Coruña
What is the price of a solar panel installation in La Coruña?
The price of a photovoltaic installation in La Coruña -and in any case- depends on the type of installation, size of the system and its components. 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.
What is the profitability of a photovoltaic installation in La Coruña? Are solar panels worth it?
From 6 to 8 years is the amortization of the investment, assuming that the discounts have been counted in the first case, and without any type of subsidies in the second. This is an average since each province of this Community has its specific bonuses and aids.
How much can be saved with a solar panel installation?
With your photovoltaic installation in La Coruña you can save approximately 60% on your electricity bill (in the variable part of it, referring to electricity consumption).
What procedures and/or permits do I need for photovoltaic installations in La Coruña?
Although these administrative procedures are often carried out by the installation company, it is important to know that the Spanish Photovoltaic Union (UNEF) has managed to get Galicia to eliminate the obligation to request a building permit for the installation of photovoltaic panels for self-consumption: an administrative barrier that will speed up the deadlines for making the installations.
Is La Coruña granting aid for the installation of solar panels in 2023?
IBI discount: %, years, uses and limitations
In La Coruña 50% for 3 years.
ICIO tax credit
Up to 95% depending on each City Council.
What subsidies are there and how to apply for aid for self-consumption in La Coruña ?
