Solar Systems - 0% VAT for Private Customers in Germany

We are pleased to inform you that, in line with the tax relief measures decided upon by the German Federal Government in the draft of the Annual Tax Act (JstG 2022), Frenchman Energy can now supply solar systems and components to private customers in Germany without charging VAT. This benefit applies both to the sale of generated electricity, which is subject to income tax, as well as to the VAT for the purchase, delivery, and installation of photovoltaic systems and energy storage devices.
