opting out of FIT in Germany


Recommended Posts

Hey Dev Team,

I was wondering if there is any option for the customers to opt themselves out of FIT and get excused from tax on self consumption (Eigenverbrauchabgabe). I mean if there is any such option available, it would be very attractive for those who have very high self consumption.

Hello Vishnu,

yes there are a few exceptions to be exempted from the tax on self consumption. E.g. this only becomes chargeable for systems with a minimum size of 10 kWp, or if you are not connected to the electrical grid, the tax is not charged. More detailed information can of course be found in the law (in german: https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/eeg_2014/BJNR106610014.html).

Kind regards,
