How much are the grants? What grant can I receive?

A quote of 6.127.283 € for the program 4 of aids for storage and photovoltaic installation was assigned. On the other hand a program of 5 142 495 € for battery amplifying were assigned to the already existed renewable energy.

The grants are awarded to the ultimate recipient once compliance with the eligible action has been justified in a timely manner, in accordance with the established requirements and conditions.

Each program has a different fund assignation. In the case of the grants for solar panels in houses, these aids are established in modules depending on the installed power in panels and the capacity of the installed batteries.

The aids are calculated according to this formula:

Grants=Power installed in panels + the capacity of the battery storage + additional aids.

You have a look on the following chart to know which grant you can receive for your new installation.

ActionsModule[Ayuda (€/kWp)]Module for the self consumption case[Ayuda (€/kWp)]
Self consumption photovoltaic installation (P ≤ 10 kWp). 600 710
Self consumption photovoltaic installation(10 kWp < P ≤ 100 kWp). 450535
Self consumption photovoltaic installation (100 kWp < P ≤ 1.000 kWp).350420
Self consumption photovoltaic installation (1.000 kWp < P ≤ 5.000 kWp).300355

To these aids we add the ones we applied to the storage.

ActionsStorage module [Ayuda (€/kWh)]
Incorporation of storage to the renewable energy installation project for self-consumption in the residential sector, public administrations and the third sector (P ≤ 10 kWh).490
Incorporation of the storage to the project of the renewable energy installation for self consumption in residential sector, public administrations and the third sector (10 kWh < P ≤ 100 kWh).350
Incorporation of the storage to the project of installation of renewable energy for self consumption in the residential sector, Public administration and third sector(100 kWh < P ≤ 5.000 kWh).245
Incorporation of storage to the renewable energy installation project for self-consumption in the residential sector, public administrations and the third sector (5.000 kWh < P).140

And also we could add to them the additional costs:

ActionsModule [Ayuda sobre actuación adicional (según caso)]
Installation of canopies for photovoltaic solar projects120 €/kWp

In the following chart we will show you which grant you cold receive if you add storage to an already existed, according to the program 5:

ActionsModule [Ayuda (€/kWh)]
Incorporation of storage to the renewable energy installation project for self-consumption in the residential sector, public administrations and the third sector (P ≤ 10 kWh).490
Incorporation of the storage to the project of the renewable energy installation for self consumption in residential sector, public administrations and the third sector (10 kWh < P ≤ 100 kWh).350
Incorporation of storage to the renewable energy installation project for self-consumption in the residential sector, public administrations and the third sector (100 kWh < P ≤ 5.000 kWh).245
Incorporation of storage to the renewable energy installation project for self-consumption in the residential sector, public administrations and the third sector (5.000 kWh < P).140

Let`s see some practical examples:

Example 1: Program 4. New solar panels installation without any storage.:
It is being quoted an installation with the peak module power of 5kWp. As this installation is less than 10kWp, your aid can be 600€ for the module, 600€ for each kWp installed.
Total grant: 3000€

Example 2: Program 4. New solar panels installation with storage.
An installation with a peak power in panels of 5kWp and batteries with a capacity of 5kWh is budgeted. Being an installation of less than 10kWp, it is entitled to an aid of €600 for each kWp and an aid for the installation of batteries of 490 for each kWh of storage.
Total grant: 3000 € + 2450 € = 5450 €.

Example 3: Program 5. Incorporation of he batteries to a already existing installation:
It is quoted an installation with a battery storage capacity 5kWh. As this installation is less than10kWh,your aid is about 490€ by module, that means 490€ for kWh.
Total grant: 2450€

Do you have more questions? Have a quick loo at our FAQ!

Finallyfor the program 3, incorporation of the storage to the self consumption installation with renewable energy sources.Those ones alredy exist in the service sector and have 1.369.065 euros assigned.

The grants are awarded to the ultimate recipient once compliance with the eligible action has been justified in a timely manner, in accordance with the established requirements and conditions.

Each program has a different fund assignation. In the case of subsidies for solar panels in companies, the intensity of these aids is measured in percentages that depend on the power installed in panels, the storage capacity of the batteries or whether they are small, medium or large companies.

For the programs 1 and 2, the granted cost for an installation of the generation, to determine the granted cost for each application can be calculated through this formula.

Csu = Ceu – Cuf

Being:
Ceu: Eligible unit cost of the generation installation, in €/kW.
Cuf: Unit cost of the reference installation in €/kW.

To this unit eligible cost can be added the corresponding “Additional unit eligible cost”, Csau.
The total granted cost of the generation facility will be:

Granted costs= (Csu + Csau) x Ps

Where Ps is the actual power of the installation of the generation in kWp.

The aid to be granted to the generation installation will be obtained by multiplying the total eligible cost of the generation installation by the aid percentage established for said action.

You can look the next chart to know what grant you can receive for your new installation, inside the programs 1 and 2.
