Independent Energy Regulatory Commission in France, La Commission de Régulation de l’Energie (CRE), published feed-in tariffs for rooftop solar systems of up to 100 kW capacity for the second quarter of 2022.

Separate tariffs were published based on system size and regions – city and non-interconnected areas.

City

For rooftop solar systems under 3 kW, the tariff was increased to €181.4 (~$190.56)/MWh from €178.9 (~$187.93)/MWh last quarter. For systems above 3 kW and up to 9 kW, the tariff is €154.2 (~$161.98)/MWh, compared to €152 (~$159.67)/MWh in the previous quarter.

The tariff for systems ranging from 9 kW to 36 kW is increased to €111.5 (~$117.13)/MWh from €108.9 (~$114.40)/MWh in the previous quarter. For systems above 36 kW and up to 100 kW, the tariff is €96.9 (~$101.79)/MWh, compared to €94.7 (~$99.48)/MWh in the quarter previous.

The French Ministry for Ecological and Inclusive Transition has announced the winners of its first round of auctions for commercial and industrial rooftop solar and ground-mounted solar projects for the period 2021-26 as part of the multi-annual energy program country or multi-year energy supply program.

France’s total installed solar PV capacity reached the 13.07 GW mark at the end of December 2021. According to published data, a total of 761 MW of solar capacity was added in the last quarter of 2021, which marked a new record. quarterly installations. Energy from renewable sources accounted for 25% of the country’s total energy consumption in 2021.
