IBI rebate for solar panels

4 min read


When buying and maintaining a property it is essential to bear in mind that there are a large number of associated taxes that you must pay to comply with the state. One of these is the Impuesto de Bienes Inmuebles (IBI).

This is a direct tax that is levied on the ownership of any house, office or building located in the municipality where the tax is levied.

Discover the amount of money you can save thanks to the IBI rebate with solar panels.

What are solar panels?

Let’s start by defining what solar panels are. They are devices that convert sunlight into electrical energy and are made up of photovoltaic cells made of silicon that absorb every single photon of light and generate electricity.

These plates receive the solar radiation by taking advantage of the so-called photovoltaic effect. In this sense, solar cells are composed of a large layer of silicon and phosphorous which give the negative charge. In contrast, the other layer contains boron, which provides the positive charge.

IBI rebates for the use of solar panels

It is no secret that many countries want to implement a new energy model that is much kinder to the environment. Spain is no exception and that is why it offers so many IBI rebates to encourage you to use this alternative.

In this order of ideas, the good news is that at Sunhero we help you with the multiple bonuses in the IBI that will contribute to your finances in a significant way.

There are currently different subsidies for all types of photovoltaic systems in the country. There are those that come from the European funds called Next Generation and are around 600 euros for each KWP that has been installed.

On the other hand, there are different IBI rebates of up to 50% over several years. However, the percentage will depend on each local council. If you want to find out what the rebates offered by your local council are, you can access the public website of your property or let experts like us advise you and tell you about the advantages. We are at your disposal for any questions you may have. But just in case you want to take a look, here is a list to give you an idea.

Next Generation Subsidies

It is a specific subsidy that is implemented through the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, financed with European funds of the same name.

In this sense, among the support offered are programmes to finance the installation of solar panels, aerothermal energy or batteries for buildings, homes or public administrations.

These include:

Incentives 4
Subsidises the installation of solar panels for self-consumption in the residential area, tertiary sector or public administrations, regardless of whether they have storage.

Incentives 5
On the other hand, we have the subsidy for the installation of solar batteries in the residential or tertiary sector.

Incentives 6
Financing the installation of different thermal renewable energies only in the residential area.

Advantages of installing solar panels on your house

Would you like to get involved in everything related to new energy trends? It’s time to take a look at some of the benefits it has to offer:

Save on your bill

When the entire system is installed in your home, you will have sustained, free energy and you will no longer be dependent on that expensive electricity grid that causes so many headaches for our pockets.

We all know that bills go up and down in value according to consumption and other macroeconomic factors that influence the programming of your expenses. Now with solar panels you will forget about this inconvenience forever.

Renewable and green energy

On the other hand, we cannot forget that solar energy is an unlimited and 100% renewable source, unlike other traditional methods that are much more expensive.

These panels take advantage of sunlight to generate electricity, eliminating the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutants that affect our planet.

Take advantage of the fact that Spain is one of the nations with the most hours of sunshine per year and optimise your expenses.

Energy independence

Think about it, if you install solar panels you will be generating your own electricity, so you will be partly independent from the electricity grid, which depends on different factors to be able to function and which fluctuates in price more and more.

Take the plunge and switch to the self-consumption grid and discover the benefits it offers you.

Increase in property value

It has also been shown that those houses that have solar installations increase their value by a large percentage compared to those that use traditional energy.

Why? Because it is a growing trend and in a few years the demand will be such that more and more homeowners will want these devices to save money. Invest now and let the economy do its job.

How are solar panels installed?

If you have reached this point, it is very likely that you will want to know how the installation is carried out so that you know what the workers will do when they arrive at your property.

The first thing they do is to place the structures that will support the respective panels and they will depend on the type of installation you choose.

Then, when the roof is flat, the roof has to be fastened and the photovoltaic panels have to be fixed. Once everything is anchored to the support, we connect them together to add them to the inverter and the electrical panel.

What are you waiting for to join the trend that is changing the world? Choose to be on the right side of history and discover all the benefits that this alternative offers you.
