The city council of Gran Canaria subsidizes photovoltaic facilities
The city council (Cabildo) of Gran Canaria has launched an aid package to subsidize photovoltaic solar panel facilities in homes, neighborhood communities, businesses and non-profit organizations.
With this measure, the Island Council for Energy of Gran Canaria (CIEGC by its acronym in Spanish) aims to promote solar self-consumption systems on the island among individuals and companies, thus achieving the sustainability objectives proposed to make the Canary Islands an area using 45% renewable energy by 2025.
Important information for applying for subsidies:
Who can apply for them?
All individuals who own homes and those communities residing on the island of Gran Canaria, as well as small, medium and micro-enterprises which are physically located on the island of Gran Canaria, including the non-profit entities located on the same.
In addition, applicants must be up to date with all of their tax obligations with the public administration and the facilities must remain active for a minimum period of 5 years.
What percentage of the cost do they cover?
The eligible amount varies depending on the category of each facility:
– Residential facilities may subsidize up to €3,000 of the facilities.
– Industrial facilities may subsidize up to €4,000 of the facilities.
Can these subsidies be compatible with others?
Yes, it is possible to apply for several aid packages for the same project, as long as together they do not add up to 100% of the cost of the facilities.
Applications are open from February 2021 to December 31, 2021.
Given the ideal characteristics of the island of Gran Canaria, solar panel facilities and power generation by self-consumption systems will have a rapid return and a direct impact on the owner’s profits from the very first month.
