France announces new FIT prices for solar power systems up to 500 kW



France’s new feed-in tariffs (FIT) for the first quarter range from €0.2349 ($0.25)/kWh for installations below 3 kW to €0.1287/kWh for 100 kW to 500 kW.

France’s energy regulator, the Commission de Régulation de l’Énergie (CRE), has published approvals for rooftop electricity installations up to 500 kW for the last quarter of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023.

The new tariffs for the fourth quarter of 2022 range from 0.2242 euros/kWh for equipment under 3 kW to 0.1228 euros/kWh for 100 kW to 500 kW. The new tariffs for the first quarter of 2023 range from 0.2349 euros/kWh for installations under 3 kW to 0.1287 euros/kWh for installations with a power of 100 kW to 500 kW.

The tariffs for the sale of surplus electricity according to net metering vary from 0.0048 to 0.0010 €/kWh in the third quarter of 2022 and from 0.0050 to 0.0011 €/kWh in the first quarter of 2023.

In October, the French government raised the size limit of solar electricity projects covered by fixed tariffs from 100 kW to 500 kW. In order to promote the development of the roof segment, the government also decided to lower the reductions planned for feed-in tariffs.
