It pays off: Your own solar systems will soon be doubly worthwhile

If the reform of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) goes through the Bundestag in the summer, full feed-in users should hope for remuneration of up to 13.40 cents per kWh. However, this only applies to solar modules that will be put into operation from 2023 – and only if you feed in all of your electricity instead of using parts of it yourself.

Full feed-in could then pay off again, especially for operators of systems with an output of more than ten kilowatts. According to product testers, these models reduce the proportion of solar power that can be used by the customer – too little to be profitable.

On the other hand, anyone who would like to continue using part of the solar power for themselves and feed the rest into the grid should continue to be paid a maximum of 6.53 cents per kWh of electricity fed into the grid. The decision between full and partial feed-in is not binding, operators can reconsider each year. The yield calculator from Stiftung Warentest can help with this.
