In Sweden there are two main subsidies for Renewables: the Green Deduction (grön teknik) and ROT.
Generally, one person can benefit of either the Grön Teknik or the ROT deduction.
What does Grön Teknik applies to?
It applies to the installation of solar panels, energy storage batteries, and electric vehicle chargers.
For solar panels, grön teknik covers 19.40 percent of the complete cost.
When it comes to solar batteries, grön teknik accounts for 48.50 percent of the entire expense.
Grön teknik also covers 48.50 percent of the total cost for electric vehicle chargers.
Grön teknik is a tax reduction that can be obtained for solar panels, energy storage, and electric car charging points. The tax reduction provides a 20% deduction on material and installation costs for solar panels, and a 50% deduction for batteries and charging points. Grön teknik is only available for private individuals.
The maximum limit for grön teknik is 50,000 SEK per person per year. It is also possible to divide the tax deduction between several people in the household. For example, the deduction can be divided into 10 percent each for two people, allowing a combined deduction of up to 100,000 SEK.
This tax benefit is directly deducted from the invoice provided by the company installing the technology.
