The government of Malta launched five new grant schemes to incentivise the production, storage and use of renewable energy as part of the €9 million investment. The aid for solar energy will accommodate households with already existing systems to utilise battery powered systems and help new families setup the installation of new solar panel systems.
The available schemes also covers those households with existing solar panel systems setup in Malta which have expired feed-in tariffs. Tariffs that expired after six and eight years will be extended by 14 and 12 years respectively.
This scheme will offer a rebate of €625 grant per kilowatt-peak (/kWp) and 50% of capital spend, capped at €2,500. This includes a feed-in tariff of 10c5 per kilowatt-hour (/kWh) for 20 year.

The grant for 2021 has been increased to cover 50% of the purchase and installation cost, capped to a maximum of €1,000.
