Solar energy potential in Las Palmas
Insolation is the amount of "useful sun" that reaches the surface and Spain in this sense is in an excellent situation in terms of solar energy, with an average of 2,500 hours of sunshine per year. In the northern areas this value is not reached, but several southern regions exceed 3,000 hours per year. In the Canary Islands, due to the cloudiness linked to the trade winds, the number of hours of sunshine varies from island to island. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has great potential for photovoltaic energy generation as it has 2,800 hours of sunshine a year. 🙌
Within the records of solar irradiation in 2020 in Spain, the highest occurred in the Canary Islands. Here, the mean irradiance curves for the entire region present a flatter shape with values above 6 kWh/m2 per day from April to September. It is in the autumn, winter and spring months when the amount of radiation received exceeds that of the Iberian Peninsula.

To calculate the photovoltaic production in Las Palmas, let us take as an example a solar installation with 3.4 kWp of installed power, where the system will have an optimal inclination angle of 24º to the south, and the result will give us an annual production of photovoltaic energy of 5,429 kWh. This contemplates a system loss of 14% and an annual irradiation in the plane of 2,027.27 kWh/m2.
Average electricity bill in Las Palmas 2021-2022

The Red Eléctrica de España (REE) indicates that households in Spain, and therefore in Las Palmas, 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 grid 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 Las Palmas
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. In Las Palmas particularly, the optimum angle of inclination is 24º.

Get the most out of your solar panel installation in Las Palmas
The Canary Islands is one of the places with the most hours of sunshine per year and for this reason, the percentage of energy production in photovoltaic self-consumption facilities is higher than in parts of the country. Las Palmas has 5.9 kWh/m2 of Peak Solar Hour. These figures are equivalent to the amount of solar energy that one square meter of surface receives.
The population of Las Palmas is 378,675 inhabitants (2021), and in addition, the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands approves regional aid and subsidies to encourage self-consumption periodically and has tax discounts from the IBI and ICIO in its municipalities. This will allow you to reduce the amortization period of the investment in Las Palmas.
Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in Las Palmas
How much does an installation of solar panels cost in Las Palmas?
