Solar energy potential in Marbella
Insolation is the amount of "useful sunshine" that reaches the surface and Spain in this respect 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. This is the case of Marbella in Malaga, which has a great potential for photovoltaic energy generation, with 3,248 hours of sunshine per year.

To calculate the photovoltaic production in Marbella, let us take as an example a solar installation of 4.8 kWp installed capacity, where the system will have an optimum tilt angle of 33º to the south, and the result will give us an annual photovoltaic energy production of 7,947.18 kWh. This assumes a system loss of 14% and an annual in-plane irradiation of 2,128.1 kWh/m2.

The Spanish Electricity Grid (REE) indicates that households in Spain, and therefore in Marbella, consume an average of 9 kWh per day and 270 kWh per month approximately, which represents about 3,240 kWh/year. In addition, the REE has also indicated that grid electricity prices in 2022-2023 have averaged around 0.172 €/kWh (172 €/MWh), so a household without a solar energy system consuming these 270 kWh per month from the grid would pay around 50 € per month on their bill, in the variable part of the electricity consumption.
Inclination and orientation of solar panels in Marbella
In Spain, the ideal average tilt of the panels varies between 20º and 40º as it is directly related to the latitude of the country. The closer a city is to the equator, the smaller the angle of inclination of the panels will be, as the sun's rays will strike perpendicularly. In Marbella in particular, the optimum angle of inclination is 33º.
Marbella's average temperature

Marbella is sheltered in the north by the Sierra Blanca mountain range, and close to the Sierra de Las Nieves, so the municipality enjoys a microclimate that gives it an average annual temperature of 18 °C.

Get the most out of your solar panel installation in Marbella
Marbella, in Malaga, is one of the places with more hours of sunshine per year and therefore, the percentage of energy production in photovoltaic self-consumption installations is higher than in other cities. It has 5.82 kWh/m2 of HSP (Peak Solar Hour), which is equivalent to the amount of solar energy that a square metre of surface area receives. In addition, the Autonomous Community of Andalucia approves regional aid and subsidies to encourage self-consumption periodically and has tax rebates on IBI and ICIO in its municipalities. This will allow you to reduce the amortisation period of the investment.
Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installations in Marbella
How much does it cost to install solar panels in Marbella?
The price of a photovoltaic installation in Marbella, as is generally the case anywhere, depends on the type of installation, the size of the system, its components, registration and legalisation procedures. Considering all the necessary materials: panels, inverter, wiring and installation costs such as labour for a single-family house requiring 10 panels, the approximate price would be 6.000€ and for 15 panels it would be 8.000€.
Is a photovoltaic installation in Marbella profitable?
The payback period for a solar panel installation in Marbella is 4-5 years on average. If you do not qualify for any of the subsidies (IBI and ICIO), the amortization would take longer (6 years), but if you have access to grants and subsidies, the investment would be recovered faster (3-4 years).
How much can you save with a solar panel installation?
With a photovoltaic installation in Marbella you can save approximately 60% and up to 70% on your electricity bill (in the variable part of the bill, referring to electricity consumption).
What procedures and/or permits are required for photovoltaic installations in Marbella?
Although normally the installation companies in Marbella take care of all the paperwork so that their clients do not have to worry about it, it is good to keep in mind that in the whole of Andalusia building permits are not a requirement, which speeds up the installation process. In any case, it is the local councils who have the final say.
Are there any subsidies for the installation of solar panels in Marbella in 2023?
IBI rebate: %, years, uses and restrictions
25% rebate for 5 years for residential use.
ICIO tax rebate
95% for properties whose main use is the production of energy.
What subsidies are there and how to apply for aid for self-consumption in Marbella?
The subsidies from European funds are part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan and in Seville they contemplate subsidies of 600€ for each kWp of the installation and 490€ for each kW of battery. This aid is intended for installations of a maximum of 10 kWp and those installations that exceed this peak power have lower amounts of aid. For municipalities with less than 5,000 inhabitants, these amounts may be higher.
In the case of Marbella, the subsidies are managed by the Andalusian Energy Agency. You can obtain more information in the Official Gazette of the Andalusian Regional Government. The deadline for submitting applications is until the allocated budget is exhausted or the budget is reallocated, and always until 31 December 2023 at the latest. Grants are limited and are awarded in order of presentation.
The first allocation for these grants has been used up and there is already a waiting list for the new allocation. To this end, the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) is extending in 2022 by 505 million euros the Incentive Programme for self-consumption, energy storage and thermal installations with renewables in the autonomous communities that have already exhausted the Programme funds they originally received, and among them is the Community of Andalucia.
Other regional aid in Marbella
The Andalusian Energy Agency has published in the Official Gazette of the Andalusian Regional Government, Resolution of 10 May 2021, the reopening of incentives for energy improvement projects with solar technology, within the Programme for the Sustainable Energy Development of Andalusia, co-financed with ERDF funds.
