Feed-in Tariffs for Solar Power (Status:01.02.2014, all information without guarantee, only for the German market)

There are new feed-in tariffs as laid out by the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) as of February 2014. The table below lists the currently valid feed-in tariffs.



Commissioning
Installed system capacity
up to 10 kWp
(Ct/kWh)
up to 40 kWp ¹
(Ct/kWh)
up to 1.000 kWp ²
(Ct/kWh)
up to 10 MWp
(Ct/kWh)
as of Nov. 1, 2013 14.07 13.35 11.91 9.74
as of Dec. 1, 2013 13.88 13.17 11.74 9.61

as of Apr. 1, 2014 13.28 12.60 11.23 9.19

¹ Starting on January 1, 2014, 90 percent of the electricity generated receives the payment. The remainder is consumed directly or sold to the free market.
² Starting on January 1, 2014, 90 percent of the electricity generated receives the payment. The remainder is consumed directly or sold to the free market.

The EEG compensation is limited to a capacity of 52 gigawatts (at the time in Germany: 28 gigawatts). When the overall expansion target is reached, new installations will not receive remuneration. However the single feed priority remains ecured for additional new plants after that. The Federal Ministry for the environment will propose a connection scheme in good time before reaching the overall management.

Note:

Starting February 1, 2014, the amount by which the feed-in tariff is reduced each month will be adjusted every three months, and will depend on the newly installed PV capacity from the previous three to 12 months. The maximum annual reduction in the feed-in tariff is capped at 29 percent.
