PV Panels and Government Grants in Malta

Panta has been at the forefront of PV technology from the initial PV concessions back in 2010. The Malta Government has (once again) opened up a grant for up to €3000 which is 50% of the value of the panels, inverter and PV system frame, we’ll help you understand how the local government grant works.

To date Panta has installed several kilowatts of residential and commercial PV systems whilst keeping up to date with the latest technology, having seen the market develop from Polycrystalline technology to Monocrystalline as the PV panel of choice today.

Following market research, the PV panel of choice today is that manufactured by LG, offering a 25year product warranty, combined with high efficiency inverters by ABB and anodised aluminum structures.

A PV system installed by Panta is usually connected to the ‘grid’ the day it is installed, and will then be metered once our certified engineer approves the project and it is submitted to Enemalta to provide your PV meter.

Our installation team is locally PV certified and applying for the grant is simple. We will walk you through the whole process from selection and design of the photovoltaic system to relative applications and installation.

Grants are limited and awarded on a first come first served basis, contact us for a free consultation today to take advantage of this limited offer.
