Last updated: 13 July 2021

Providing incentives to support the residential and commercial rooftop solar, Switzerland has offered to increase financial support through rebates by another CHF 46 million and by limiting waiting time for encouraging subsidies for PVs.


This support can be detailled in two categories:


One-off payment for large photovoltaic installations (GRU): a processing time of only around 3 months will be applied to installations announced to Pronovo AG since February 2020; the installations announced before that will receive by mid-May 2020 at the latest the assurance of obtaining their remuneration


One-off compensation for small photovoltaic installations (PRU): all plant operators who have submitted their application to Pronovo AG up to and including March 31, 2020 will receive the assurance of obtaining their compensation by the end of 2020. From April 2020, the waiting time for new announcements therefore drops to around nine months.
