Greece plans 60% subsidy for rooftop solar panels

Rooftop photovoltaic panels combined with power storage will be subsidized by the state to up to 60% of their cost, an Energy Ministry official told the Renewable and Storage Forum on Thursday.

Subsidies are for units up to 10 kilowatts, with the program’s details to be unveiled for a period of public consultation within the next two weeks.

The government is also working on two more programs to support the installation of photovoltaics: one targeting self-generation by businesses and another to promote energy communities for helping vulnerable consumers, energy secretary Alexandra Sdoukou said.

According to media reports, the subsidy program many go into effect sometime in spring 2023.
