Solar energy potential in Mahón

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 Balearic Islands, the number of hours of sunshine is variable depending on the islands. It has great potential for photovoltaic energy generation since it has: Mallorca 3,098 and Menorca (Mahón) 2,981 hours of sunshine per year, to name a few. 🙌

To calculate the photovoltaic production in Mahón, 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 35º to the south, and the result will give us an annual production of photovoltaic energy of 5,237 .97 kWh. This contemplates a system loss of 14% and an annual irradiation of 1,974.79 kWh/m2.

Average electricity bill in Mahón 2021-2022

The Red Eléctrica de España (REE) indicates that households in Spain, and therefore in Baleares, 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 Mahón

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 Mahón particularly, the optimal angle of inclination is 35º.

Get the most out of your solar panel installation in Mahón

The Balearic 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. It has 5.3 kWh/m2 of HSP (Peak Solar Hour), a figure that is equivalent to the amount of solar energy that one square meter of surface receives.

In addition, the Autonomous Community approves regional aid and subsidies to encourage self-consumption periodically and has tax discounts from the IBI and the ICIO in its municipalities. This will allow you to reduce the payback period of the investment.

Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in Mahón

How much does an installation of solar panels cost in Mahón?

The price of a photovoltaic installation in Mahón, and as is generally the case 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 Mahón? Are solar panels worth it?

The recovery of the investment in solar panel installations in Baleares is amortized differently depending on the aid on each island. On average, in an average of 5 years. If none of the bonuses (IBI and ICIO) are accessed, the amortization would take longer, but if the aid is available, the investment would be recovered faster.

How much can be saved with a solar panel installation?
