Local self-government units have the opportunity to apply for a public request for financing the installation of solar panels, which was launched in early September. According to the Ministry of Mining and Energy, the call for citizens will be published in early December.

Subsidies for the installation of solar panels and accompanying installations in family houses for the production of electricity for personal use will amount to 50% of the total value of the works.

The Government of Serbia has passed a decree which determines the criteria, circumstances and methods for the calculation of receivables and liabilities between the buyer-producer (prosumer) and the supplier.

How much money can you save?

According to some estimates, the typical household energy consumption in Serbia is around 400 kWh, with an average bill of around 3,500 dinars.

If the average consumer installs 5kW solar panels on the roof, which on average produce at least 430 kWh in Serbia, he will pay only fixed costs of approximately 700 dinars at the end of the month and save almost 3,000 dinars per month, as stated by the Ministry of Mining and Energy.

A 5kW solar panel costs around 4,000 EUR.

Citizens will spend around 2,000 EUR for the installation of solar panels of this power, considering that half of the investment is subsidized by the state and local self-government. That investment will pay off in about 6.5 years, after which citizens will have minimal costs for the next almost 20 years, given that they only pay fixed fees.

Customers-producers will have a two-way meter, which means that they will deliver excess produced energy to the distribution network when they can, and they will take energy from the network when they cannot create enough for their needs. If at the end of the month they create more energy than they consume, that amount will carry over to the next month.
