ENEL X SUN PLUG & PLAY: the photovoltaic balcony kit

Photovoltaics is rapidly becoming a must have, a trend due to the increased time spent at home, the wider use of devices such as smart home automation , the replacement of gas systems with electricity systems, the decrease in activities in the offices in favor of agile work and the increasing diffusion of charging stations for electric vehicles in garages and parking lots of private homes.

However, this does not always automatically translate into a solution within everyone's reach. It is not just an economic issue: often the biggest problem is the impossibility of installing a photovoltaic system on the roof due to lack of space or because the house in which you live is located in a condominium, with all the consequent practices and authorizations to follow.

There is, however, another solution. A convenient alternative that allows you to reduce your consumption, focusing on energy sustainability by reducing your bill costs.

The Balcony Photovoltaic Kit

It is a small, handy photovoltaic panel that can be installed quickly and easily on the balcony of any apartment. The system consists of a panel that produces direct current, which is then switched into alternating current by an inverter which injects the energy produced directly into the grid.

The impact on the bill depends on the efficiency and characteristics of the product, but there are some precautions that can significantly increase the yield:

  • install the panel on a south-facing balcony;
  • use the appliances more energy-intensive during the day instead of in the evening. This is because, in the event that a storage battery is not available, it is necessary to consume the energy when it is fed into the grid.

Furthermore, unless there are landscape or architectural constraints, no permits are required to install the photovoltaic panel for the balcony and immediately start saving, reducing costs in the bill and optimizing domestic consumption.

The obligations to be implemented consist of:

  • in the prior communication to the condominium regarding the '' installation of a photovoltaic system intended for the service of one's apartment pursuant to Article 1122 bis of the Italian Civil Code;
  • when sending the Single Communication (attached to ARERA Resolution no. 315/2020/R/eel).

In order to benefit from the tax deduction, it is also necessary to send:

  • a communication to ENEA;
  • a communication of the option for the contribution in the form of a discount to the Revenue Agency, in the event that the taxpayer chooses to opt for the contribution in the form of a discount on the invoice and does not wish to use the deduction directly in the tax return.
