The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) allocated NOK31 million (€3.03 million) across 1,613 rooftop PV projects totaling 31.7 MW under the Plusskundeordningen solar rebate program in 2020, according to new statistics released by Enova, a government enterprise responsible for the promotion of environmentally friendly production and consumption of energy.
In the previous year, the NVE allocated 31.9 MW of PV capacity across 1,666 projects under the scheme and the allocated funds had equaled NOK31.9 million.
“2020 was no good year for solar PV in the Nordics, with the lowest power prices in more than two decades and much policy confusion,” Andreas E Thorsheim, the CEO of Norwegian tech company Otovo, told pv magazine. “Now, 2021 looks very strong for residential solar, with power prices back at high levels and an Enova subsidy scheme that many people will want to take advantage of.”
