SolarPLUS – photovoltaic funding for Berlin’s solar transition
Partial funding (purchase of an energy storage system, in cases where the applicant is not the owner of a detached or semi-detached house)
Fixed amount award (purchase of an energy storage system, in cases where the applicant is the owner of a detached or semi-detached house)
The aim is for the roofs of residential and non-residential buildings in Berlin to be used for photovoltaic (PV) installations. In particular, the programme aims to increase the use of apartment building roofs for PV tenant electricity projects. Residents and companies should be provided with an additional incentive to construct new photovoltaic installations, besides the positive impacts in terms of climate protection. Financial support in the form of this funding is to be granted independently of any obligation as a result of Berlin’s solar law. The state of Berlin has recognised that, for successful PV expansion, different funding options need to be provided to address the various applications of solar projects.
The funding is awarded to projects that fall into at least one of the following categories. Funding can also cover a combination of more than one category.
Category A Surveys – Studies – Concepts – Advice (A 1 Roof surveys, A 2 Feasibility studies, A 3 Metering and measuring concepts, A 4 Tax advice)
