Solar energy potential in Sevilla
Spain is in an excellent situation in terms of solar energy with an average of 2,500 hours of sunshine per year. The annual amount of sunshine (and the average number of hours of sunshine in Spain) increases fairly regularly from north to south. In the northern areas this value is not reached (Galicia, Cantabrian and upper Ebro is from 1,600 to 2,000 hours), while the highest values of insolation occur in Badajoz, Sevilla, Almería and Alicante).
Several southern regions such as Sevilla (3,526 hours), can exceed 3,000 hours per year. Andalucia is the region of the country that receives the most sunlight, and therefore Sevilla has exceptional sunshine, which makes it a favorite when it comes to installing photovoltaic systems.

Sevilla is an optimal area for the installation of this type of self-consumption systems. If, for example, a peak power of 3.4 kWp is installed, with an expected system loss of 14% and at a 33° angle, the annual production of photovoltaic energy in Sevilla would be 5,638.4 kWh. The months of greatest production are from May to August with 532.59 kWh; 530.17 kWh; 562.55 kWh and 552.72 kWh, each of these four months. Note that the result of the PV calculation is the monthly and annual average energy production of the PV system.

In Sevilla, the Red Eléctrica de España (REE) indicates that Spanish households consume an average of 9 kWh per day and approximately 270 kWh per month, which represents about 3,240 kWh/year. Likewise, that the prices of electricity from the Sevilla grid in 2021-2022 have averaged around €0.225/kWh (€225/MWh), so that a household without a solar energy system that annually consumes from the grid these 3,240 kWh would pay around €730 per year in the variable part of the electricity bill referring to consumption.
Inclination and orientation of solar panels in Sevilla
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. Although the inclination of the photovoltaic installations in most homes in Spain is between 20º and 35º, the solar panels in the region of Sevilla are oriented to the south with an approximate inclination of 33º to achieve maximum performance from them.
It should be noted that the south facing solar panels in Sevilla will produce the most energy, but if you want to place the modules facing east or west it is also worth it, especially if you need to cover electricity needs in the morning, or more in the afternoon, respectively, increasing the home's own electricity consumption.
Sevilla's average temperature

With an average annual temperature of 20°C, Sevilla is located in the lower part of the Guadalquivir Valley, which is often known as "the frying pan of Spain", since the hottest cities in the country are located there. The capital of Andalucia has very hot and dry summers, with daily highs above 35°C in July and August, and mild winters with moderate rainfall.
The fact that it receives an average amount of solar energy equivalent to approximately 5.98 kWh/m2 per day plays a key role when assessing the installation of photovoltaic systems in Sevilla.

If you want to know what the conditions are for installing a self-consumption photovoltaic system in your area and calculate the photovoltaic production and potential savings, at Quiero Sol we help homes and companies in Sevilla so that they can compare installers, understand the concept of solar self-consumption and know how much they can save on the price of their installation through the national subsidies and local aid that the City Councils offer in 2023.
Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in Sevilla
What is the price of a solar panel installation in Sevilla?
The price of a photovoltaic installation in Sevilla -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.
Is a photovoltaic installation profitable in Sevilla? Are solar panels worth it?
The time it takes to amortize the investment in a solar panel system for a resident of Sevilla is less than 6 years, if no help is available. In the case of having the largest possible bonuses (on the IBI of the house and on the ICIO), the time is reduced to 4 years. If you also add subsidies from European funds, the amortization time is reduced even more.
How much can be saved with a solar panel installation?
With a photovoltaic installation in Sevilla 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 Sevilla?
Normally, these administrative procedures are often carried out by the installation company. However, it is useful for you to know that building permits are not required throughout the Andalusian Community, which speeds up the installation process. In any case, it is the municipalities that have the last word.
Is there aid for the installation of solar panels in Sevilla in 2023?
IBI discount: %, years, uses and limitations
In Sevilla, the bonus is 50% the first 3 years and 30% discount in the fourth year.
ICIO tax credit
A bonus of 75% of the quota is established for the incorporation of systems for the thermal or electrical use of solar energy for self-consumption.
What subsidies are there and how to request aid for self-consumption in Sevilla?
The subsidies from European funds are part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan and in Sevilla 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 Sevilla, the aid is managed by the Andalusian Energy Agency. You can obtain more information in the Official Bulletin 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 Andalucia.
Other regional aid in Sevilla
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 Andalucia, co-financed with FEDER funds.
