Ireland reduces VAT on residential PV to 0%



The Irish government plans to introduce a new measure in its Finance Bill this week to remove value added tax (VAT) on solar products.

The country’s environment minister, Eamon Ryan, announced it on his Twitter account.

According to several Irish media reports, lawmakers are debating the new measure as part of the Finance Bill this week.

In October, Ireland’s Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage has announced changes to planning regulations to allow homeowners to install solar panels on their roofs without planning permission. Under the new rules, homeowners are allowed to use 100% of their roof surfaces for solar power systems, up from just 50%.

Ireland supports rooftop electricity that operates under a net metering system through a rebate program. The system is designed to use approximately 380 MW of solar power.
