Is it reasonable to rent a photovoltaic system?

There are different reasons for renting a photovoltaic system. Here we have listed the most important ones for you – divided into private and commercial consumers.

Private Energy Consumers

Reasons for renting as a private consumer:

  • High usage of power during the day at a high cost per kWh
  • No equity capital needed
  • No need to take up a loan
  • The lessor carries all the technical risks
  • Unchanging energy prices
  • Protect the environment without making a huge investment

It is possible for family members or friends to invest in a photovoltaic system and rent it to a private user. The investor will receive tax benefits this way.
Details should be discussed with the tax-consultant of your confidence.

Commercial Energy Consumers

Reasons for renting as a commercial consumer:

  • Sustainable energy supply, no investment
  • Actively contribute to the protection of the environment
  • EEG apportionment reduced up to 60% for PV systems > 10 kWp*
  • The lessor carries all the technical risks
  • Archiving a stable and long-term price for energy
  • Co-workers (or family) invest and rent out to the company

* In accordance with the EEG (law for renewable energy), each kW generated by a PV roof system used by the company, the full price defined in the EEG (2017 = 6,880 Cent/kWh) has to be payed to the state, if the PV system does not belong to the company. If the system is rented by the company it can be classified as a system owned by the company under certain circumstances. In that case only a reduced price (2017 = 2,752 Cent/kWh) must be payed. This way your cost for energy is reduced by about 4 Cent/kWh.
