Spain to eliminate "sun tax" on self-consumption


October 10 (Solar) – The Spanish government will eliminate the so-called "sun tax" on solar self-consumption as part of measures announced on Friday to ease electricity prices and support the energy transition.   

The measures were published in a decree law and include efforts to remove barriers that have so far hampered the development of electricity self-consumption in the country. In addition to removing the "sun tax," these envisage a simplification of administrative procedures for self-consumption and recognition of the right of shared self-consumption.

Spanish photovoltaic (PV) association Unión Española Fotovoltaica (UNEF) said that with vertical housing predominating in Spain, the possibility of installing shared self-consumption systems in buildings provides a great opportunity to reduce energy costs.

UNEF applauded the news on the "sun tax" and called on parliamentary groups to support the text.
