What is energy income?

Energy Income is a measure introduced by the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security through the decree of 8 August 2023. This program aims to support families with a ISEE less than 15,000 euroswhich can be increased to 30,000 euros for families with at least four dependent children, allowing them to install domestic photovoltaic systems with a power between 2 and 6 kW at no cost.

Photovoltaic systems must be placed on roofs and surfaces of residential properties owned or used by the applicants, or on appurtenances of the same properties, including land. Each family unit has the possibility of submitting only one application and benefiting only once from the incentives.

The selected installers will not only take care of the installation of the systems, but will also guarantee maintenance and performance monitoring for ten years. In addition, they will provide a multi-risk insurance policy to cover any problems related to the system.
