In line with Italy’s new national energy strategy, the Italian Revenue Agency will introduce tax breaks for off grid PV systems without access to the country’s feed-in tariff.
A statement from the Italian solar association Gruppo Imprese Fotovoltaiche Italiane (Gifi) said that PV systems installed with a maximum budget of €48,000 from 1 July 2013, will have access to a fiscal break of 50%. This includes systems under the net metering scheme.
PV systems installed between 26 and 30 June 2013 with a maximum budget of €96,000 will have access to a tax break of 36%.
Gifi said it welcomed the decision of the Italian Revenue Agency.
