Solar, subsidies and JRM
#1
Hi

With the lack of response from Solarland we have got some initial information from Omar at JRM.

He reckons subsidies are open until the end of next week so if we want a hot water system we should jump now, and get 50% of it paid. We would pay JRM €150 for the subsidy application but this would be offset against any installation they do.

Has anyone used JRM before?  

He is also asking for info like padron etc, deeds etc, (understandable) but also annual income and a statement from the bank, which I am less sure about. Are the subsidies means-tested (we are only on a single pension here so should be ok!)

Grateful for any advice and we will of course keep you updated on progress.

Bill

Hi Bill,

I have had a quote from JRM sor a solar panel installation and will be proceeding once we have the Money available. The house opposite us had a system installed by JRM, they are very happy with them as a company and the system.

I haven’t heard anything about Solar Subsidies being available in 2023 and to be honest would be a bit suspicious of anyone telling you they expire next week! Sounds like pressurising to me. Again, I’ve read nothing to suggest subsidies are available and there’s a deadline. If they were available, they’re certainly not means tested so why this company is asking for an income statement is odd.
If I were you, before laying out any Money, I’d try to contact someone in the Cabildo to establish if subsidies are currently available.

Thanks Joy Division but it is kosher. It's on the Cabildo website and was launched back in April. The deadline is indeed 17th and that was also confirmed by another company. So, all good on that front. :-)

Thanks Pete, Omar seemed a nice guy. But suggested we stay on the grid but using solar to minimise usage, rather than going fully off grid. We will have a think.

Incredible, a subsidy that’s available only for a few weeks! Blink and you could miss it. Could only happen in the Canaries 😂
Good luck.

You can have (and pay for) the installation then claim the subsidy the following year which is 50% of the cost up to 4000€ I believe.

Interesting - I knew it was 50% or €4000 max, but didn't know you could claim in retrospect!

A quick update. We received a really positive and professional response from both firms.

For a variety of reasons we are delaying applying (nothing to do with the firms in question) and will keep our fingers crossed for future subsidy tranches.

I will update the Forum when we do apply.

Radio Sintonia:

Increase in the credit of subsidies for self-consumption facilities in homes.

The Cabildo de Fuerteventura has approved today, Monday, June 19, an increase in the budget for the 2023 call for subsidies for self-consumption facilities in homes.


This measure, which aims to promote the use of renewable energies and improve energy efficiency in the residential sector of the island, was initially approved in the Governing Council on April 4, where a total amount of 503,566 euros was allocated from the budget of the Island Corporation for the year 2023.

Due to the high number of applications received, a total of 394, the Cabildo has considered it necessary to increase the available credit by 628,036 euros, in order to meet all applications that meet the requirements established in the call, adding a total availability of 1.1 million euros.

This budget modification is based on the importance of promoting energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies in the residential sector, which represents one of the largest consumers of energy and CO2 emitters.

With this measure, "the Cabildo reaffirms its commitment to the promotion of renewable energies and the promotion of energy efficiency in the residential area, thus contributing to the protection of the environment and the improvement of the quality of life of citizens," said the first insular councilor, Sergio Lloret.
