Solar energy potential in Tenerife

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 according to the islands. Tenerife -like the rest of the islands- has a great potential for generating photovoltaic energy since it has 3,098 hours of sunshine per year. However, the AEMet (State Meteorological Agency) in the Statistical Yearbook of Spain 2019 "Physical environment and environment" has registered 3,165 hours of sunshine in 2017. 🙌

To calculate the photovoltaic production in Tenerife, let us take as an example a solar installation with 3.4 kWp of installed power, where the system will have an optimal angle of inclination of 29º to the south, and the result will give us an annual photovoltaic energy production of 6,068.55 kWh. This contemplates a system loss of 14% and an annual irradiation in the plane of 2,272.32 kWh/m2.

Average electricity bill in Tenerife 2021-2022

The Red Eléctrica de España (REE) indicates that households in Spain, and therefore in Tenerife, 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 Tenerife's 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 Tenerife

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 Tenerife particularly, the optimum angle of inclination is 29º.

Average temperature of Tenerife

Tenerife is known as the "Island of Eternal Spring" due in large part to the trade winds, whose humidity condenses and forms large seas of clouds and its average temperature is 22°C. In addition, the climate of Tenerife is moderate, temperate and very mild in any season of the year. There are no periods of cold but neither of suffocating heat. Average temperatures are 18°C in winter and 25°C in summer.

Get the most out of your solar panel installation in Tenerife

Tenerife 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 installations is higher than in other cities. It has 5.3 kWh/m2 of Peak Solar Hour, which is equivalent to the amount of solar energy received by a square meter of surface. In addition, the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands periodically approves regional aid and subsidies to encourage self-consumption and has IBI and ICIO tax credits in its municipalities. This will allow you to reduce the amortization period of the investment.

Frequently asked questions about photovoltaic installation in Tenerife

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

The price of a photovoltaic installation in Tenerife, 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 Tenerife? Are solar panels worth it?

The recovery of the investment in solar panel installations in Tenerife is amortized over 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 an installation of solar panels?

With a photovoltaic installation in Tenerife 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 Tenerife?

Although usually the installation companies in Tenerife are in charge of managing all the paperwork so that their clients do not have to worry about it, it is good to bear in mind that the process of legalizing photovoltaic self-consumption installations in Tenerife is adapted to what is established in Royal Decree of Self-consumption 244/2019.

Is there aid for the installation of solar panels in Tenerife in 2023?

IBI discount: %, years, uses and limitations

50% rebate for 5 years for residential use.

ICIO tax credit

What subsidies are there and how to request aid for self-consumption in Tenerife?

The subsidies from European funds are part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan and in Tenerife 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.Applications for grants must be submitted to the Electronic Office of the Government of the Canary Islands. You can obtain more information in the Official Bulletin of the Canary Islands. The deadline for submitting applications is until the allocated budget or budget reallocation is exhausted, and always until December 31, 2023 at the latest.
