Switzerland introduces rebate scheme for solar

Switzerland has announced a new one-off incentive model for solar, in order to reimburse up to 60% of investment costs for installations that meet certain criteria. The scheme exists in addition to nonrecurring remunerations for small and large PV installations.

On Jan. 1, the Swiss Confederation introduced a “high one-off payment” (HEIV) for solar, in addition to the other existing incentives models: the non-recurring remuneration for small installations (KLEIV), less than 100 kW, and the non-recurring remuneration for large installations (GREIV), more than 100 kW.

The HEIV aims to reimburse up to 60% of the investment costs of installations meeting the conditions below:

  • The installation must have a capacity of at least 2 kW but less than 150 kW
  • All electricity produced must be fed into the grid
  • The installation must operate for 15 years without self-consumption
  • The installation must be commissioned from Jan. 1, 2023

In 2023, the planned HEIV fee per installed kilowatt is CHF 450 ($492). If the PV system is also entitled to a tilt angle bonus, this bonus will also be paid.
