Solar panel installations and the IBI reduction

First off, what is the IBI?

Well, it's an annual, local tax (regulated by Royal Legislative Decree 2/2004) that's levied on the value of property assets such as dwellings, car parks, storage spaces or commercial premises, whether they're urban, rustic or have special characteristics.

Renewable energy incentives

When you install solar panels, one of the benefits might be an exemption from or reduction of IBI. Many councils offer IBI incentives to private individuals and companies that invest in renewable energies, including solar energy.

Up to 50% discount

As it's a local tax by each council, the benefit of adding solar panels is different depending on where you live, and rebates can cover up to 50% of the total IBI for a certain period.

You cut greenhouse gas emissions

Of course, making the decision to install solar panels isn’t all about the IBI rebate. It also means you contribute to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, supporting the creation of a healthier environment and furthering the energy transition.

Application and requirements for IBI rebate for solar panels

The IBI rebate for solar panel installation isn't applied immediately when your panels are installed. You have to request it from the corresponding council. Each council will have its own specific rules and procedures for the IBI rebate application. Here are the three routes available to you:




You can apply using the Council's Oficina Virtual (virtual office). In the majority of cases, they will ask for some kind of proof of identity, such as a Digital Certificate, electronic DNI or secure user key. However, there are also some councils that will allow those who don’t have a digital certificate to apply online, if they enter an email address. In these cases, they may give you a time period during which you will need to present yourself at the relevant council office to sign the application. You will be able to decide how you would like them to notify you that your application has been processed.
