How Much Does Croatian Solar Panel Installation Now Cost?

By 27 August 2022

August the 27th, 2022 - Precisely how much does Croatian solar panel installation cost, and how much can really be saved by going to the trouble of having them fitted?

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, with just how much sun Croatia receives on an annual basis, residents deciding to go for Croatian solar power installation could save thousands and thousands of kuna a year if they decided to take the leap and get their power directly from the sun. Since the government removed VAT on it, everyone appears to be going a little crazy about Croatian solar panel installation, as reported by RTL.

"Just by the number of emails arriving, we can see that the interest in Croatian solar power installation has increased and that there will be more of such things to come," said Jasmina Novak, Solvis project manager.

Because of this, the machines working in the production of these panels are rarely ever turned off. The only producer of photovoltaic modules in all of the Republic of Croatia sold its solar panals to Google, and now they're having to pass on smaller jobs to others because they simply can't manage it all on their own anymore, such is the level of interest.

"We're raising the sector by forwarding these smaller inquiries to our partners, who then process the inquiry on a turnkey basis, from project to realisation, and that is working very well for now," explained Novak.

They hope that the Croatian Government's measure to abolish VAT, which will make solar panels cheaper in general, will also work well. What currently costs 35,000 kuna will then cost 26,250 kuna to buy and have installed. People's pockets are far more shallow than the once were, and with inflation continuing to bite and prices continuing to spiral, it's likely that there will be more and more interest for solar panels as time goes on.
