The Italian Green Genius offers the possibility of renting photovoltaic panels online, open to both individuals and companies.
How to rent photovoltaic panels?
A new way to reduce your electricity bill comes from Italy, and is to rent solar panels online.
This possibility is offered for the first time in Italy by the Green Genius company, specialized in the distribution of solar energy. Its photovoltaic panel leasing model is aimed at both individuals and companies. All you have to do is have a roof and the company will take care of the installation, writing the bureaucratic applications and the insurance. A business model that we have already talked about, rent a roof.
Currently the average cost for Italians who buy electricity is 0.21 euros per kWh, taxes included, while the average cost of electricity for businesses is 0.14 euros per kWh, taxes included.
This is one of the highest rates in the European Union. By installing free solar panels, Green Genius will reduce the cost of electricity for users by up to € 0.11 per kWh.
Homeowners will be able to reduce their annual electric bills by 20% or more, depending on several factors. The amount of savings depends on the relationship between the amount of electricity consumed directly and that stored on the grid, since in Italy operators apply taxes to energy storage.
” Solar energy must be available to everyone. The model for renting solar power plants and producing energy as a service, which has already been successful in Northern Europe, can offer many advantages to Italian consumers. Thanks to the high number of sunny days in Italy, the production and use of solar energy can be very efficient for individuals and businesses. “
The company installs solar power plants free of charge on the roofs and terraces of the private homes of its clients, who do not have to deal with maintenance or preparing the necessary documentation. Consumers, who can book the service directly online, pay for the service subscription in kilowatts.
In the case of private citizens, the additional solar energy produced is stored in their electricity grid and will be available in dark hours or on cloudy days. For the conservation of energy in the common grid, the national operator applies a fixed tax, which is why it is more advantageous for individuals to consume in a short time the largest possible amount of solar energy produced by the plant.
It is estimated that the installation of a 3 kW solar power plant under his charge costs at least 6 thousand euros. Buying solar energy as a service, on the other hand, does not require any initial investment.
