With the Stimuleringsregeling Duurzame Energieproductie (SDE +) subsidy, the Dutch government promotes the generation of sustainable energy. Companies and institutions that are going to produce energy are eligible for this subsidy. The upcoming SDE round will start on 17 March 2020. Are you interested in entering this round? Zoncoalitie can take you through the application process until March 2, 2020. Start early! This subsidy will greatly improve the cost-benefit analysis of an investment in solar panels.
The government sets the budget for SDE subsidy. Since 2019, the government has reduced the subsidy available (see figure). Subsidies are also going to change: the next round will be the last in the current form. The SDE+ will be renamed SDE++ (Stimuleringsregeling Duurzame Energietransitie). This means that the subsidy budget will have to be divided among more sustainability initiatives. This means that less money will be available to finance solar power projects. As a result, the government will set more specific requirements per installation in order to have a chance of obtaining a subsidy. The subsidy will also be granted in one round per year instead of two.
The timelines for solar projects can take a long time. For an SDE+ subsidy application a construction plan has to be created and depending on the size, a feasibility study is carried out. The next deadline for SDE+ application is:
Don’t take risks and apply for the subsidy on time!
When applying for an SDE+ subsidy you need to have a number of documents on hand. So, in order to speed up the application process, Zoncoalitie has drawn up the SDE+ Checklist Spring 2020 specifically for the real estate owner.
Make sure that the supplied list of objects contains at least the following parameters:
# | Street name | House number | Postal code | City
* Cadastral indications are also accepted.
In some cases several addresses are known on properties, we are looking for the address that is known to have a large power supply there (meter container).
In order to apply for the subsidy, a large-scale connection is required, at this stage it is good to know what the connection value is, and where this connection is located.
In order to make a layout plan of the location, it is important that we use the correct roof surfaces of the location, therefore we would like to receive the following information:
Objects under construction:
If the building is not yet visible on the usual mapping systems because it is still under construction, then construction drawings are needed to determine the laying plans.
Note: If the building is to be built, or is under construction, an environmental permit must be sent to the owner.
In order to finally submit the application, we need a fully completed authorization.
If the applicant who authorizes us is not the owner, a completed form with the permission of the owner of the location must be enclosed.
In order to make optimal use of the SDE+ subsidy possibilities for your real estate, it is beneficial to submit an application now. In this way, your return on investment will remain the highest.
