A 200 million euro fund to allow low-income households to install solar panels to save on energy bills.
Here comes the Energy Income Fund
This amount is made available by the Ministry of Environment and Energy Security through an order of the Minister gilberto pichetto fratin, official name: national energy income fund, overall 200 million overall concerns should be disseminated Two year term 2024 and 2025,
And that’s not all: Fund can be extended With voluntary payment by the central administration, regions, provinces, but also public organizations and non-profit organizations. In this regard, it must be remembered that there are already realities that have put energy initiatives on the table at the local level, such as the Sardinia and Puglia regions.
Fund will be managed by GSE (Energy Services Manager), a public company that distributes subsidies to renewable sources.
Photovoltaic systems should have a nominal power of not less than 2 kW and not more than 6, In any case, they should not exceed the nominal withdrawal power at the connection point. Panels should be erected on surfaces, roofs, areas and equipment over which the beneficiary has actual possession.
Energy Income: Who Owns It?
The Energy Income Fund is a capital grant. that is, it is a non-refundable contribution, Will be able to access the family loan:
- Those who have less than ISE 15 mi euro
- or with an ISE of less 30 thousand euro But with at least 4 dependent children.
“With this provision we are pursuing a double objective,” said Minister Gilberto Picheto. “Social as well as environmental in supporting the poorest groups, as we promote the use of renewable energy. It is the response of a new government to implement real and equitable energy security”.
So, with one hand we help the low income families, while with the other hand we do something in favor of green change.
National Energy Income Fund: More resources in the South
Given the income situation in Italy, most of the resources would be spent in the south. Four-fifths of the resources will be divided into 8 sectors:
With regard to the installation of photovoltaic panels, the landscape constraints certainly remain unchanged.
Istat certifies that 8.9% of Italian households are in energy poverty.
The so-called energy income providing fund was envisaged by CIPE Resolution no. 7 of 17 March 2020. The underlying rationale is to favor energy self-consumption of low-income households. However, the resource has been blocked for a long time.
The measure adds to measures already formulated by the budget law in favor of low-income households and in support of green change.
how much does a photovoltaic system cost
The average cost of a 6 kW photovoltaic system ranges from 12,000 to 15,000 euros. With no more than about 3 thousand euros it is possible to add an accumulator. This type of system allows considerable savings on the energy bill, even to the extent of 75%.
