Watch: New grants for solar panels launched

New grants schemes have been introduced for solar panels, Energy Minister Michael Farrugia announced on Monday in a statement.

The government will be offering a grant up to €3,000 for every photovoltaic system installed and will guarantee a feed-in tariff at 10c5 for every unit for 20 years.

Minister Farrugia said the new schemes would help families lower their energy consumption and contribute to Malta’s renewable energy goals. In line EU targets, 10 per cent of Malta’s energy consumption must come from renewable sources by 2020.
