The government of North Macedonia has recently improved the net metering scheme for solar installations and has launched a EUR 1 billion rebate scheme to support the deployment of rooftop PV systems under the scheme, Pv-magazine reports.
The Ministry of Economy improved the net metering regime by increasing the maximum size for residential PV systems eligible to inject surplus power into the grid from 4 to 6 kW and from 20 to 40 kW for commercial solar arrays. As for the rebate scheme, it will cover up to 30% of the costs of buying and installing a PV system, with a maximum amount of MKD 62,000 ($1,025) being available for each project.
Furthermore, the local media outlet Energetika.netreported that the head of the country's energy regulator – the ERC – has promised to eliminate all network fees that are currently applied to residential and commercial consumers that install a PV system.
The Macedonian government is targeting to deploy 250 MW of rooftop PV capacity by 2030, according to i ts National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP).
