Self-consumption is one of the alternatives which is increasingly spreading in homes for the production of energy, since it promotes sustainability with the environment and represents significant savings. In this sense, last 2021, The central government approved an item of 1,320 million euros for subsidies for self-consumption, batteries and renewable air conditioning.

Deductions in the income tax return
Given the increasing demand for this type of facility, the startup specialized in self-consumption, Soof, details the key points in terms of aid for the financing of solar panels.
On the one hand, there are deductions when paying income tax (IRPF). “The aid can be requested when the income statement is made and can reach 40% of the amount invested“, they explain from Soof. For this, two basic requirements must be met: the installation of the solar panels must be carried out by an authorized company and, on the other hand, the applicant must be the owner of the property in which the installation is carried out .
Discounts in the IBI and in the ICIO
On the other hand, there are rebates for the Real Estate Tax (IBI) and the Construction, Installations and Works Tax (ICIO).

Aid from European funds
