They shine on many rooftops already: solar modules. Plant operators should keep their eyes open this year. Because in the future it may be more worthwhile to sell a self-made power brand.
Private individuals who have a photovoltaic system on a roof are probably already familiar with the bill of remuneration: electricity supplied to the public grid is currently remunerated at just six cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). Electricity purchased from a provider often costs more than 30 cents per kWh. That’s why it’s worth using as much solar energy yourself as possible. However, in the future, it may be more attractive to sell self-generated electricity. Because the expected change in the law promises to double the remuneration rates for full feeders. This is what the magazine “FinnzTest” tells (issue 6/2022) There.
New regulation of remuneration for photovoltaic systems from 2023
If the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) reform goes through the Bundestag in the summer, full feed-in users should expect remuneration of up to 13.40 cents per kWh. However, this only applies to solar modules that will be put into operation from 2023.
Full feed-in can pay off again, especially for operators of systems with outputs of more than ten kilowatts. According to product testers, these models reduce the proportion of solar power that can be used by the customer – too little to be profitable.
On the other hand, anyone who wants to continue to use part of the solar power for themselves and feed the rest into the grid should continue to receive a maximum of 6.53 cents per kWh of electricity fed into the grid. The decision between full and partial feed-in is not binding, operators may reconsider each year. he can help yield calculator Stitching Warrentest.
Homeowners need a little more patience
Basically, “Finanztest” advises homeowners who want to install a system in the near future to be patient. Only when the federal economics ministry ratifies the new remuneration rates and passes the Bundestag law will plant operators be certain. This will probably happen in late June or early July 2022.
But homeowners will have to be patient anyway – completely independent of any feed-in tariffs. After the contract is signed, it often takes more than half a year until a small rooftop solar power plant is installed due to high demand.
