What do I need to use the calculator?

You need a copy of your an electricity bill for your property in Spain to hand.

The Solar Calculator asks for your electricity consumption (in kWh) and bill amount (€).

This is calculate your current electricity costs (€/kWh) and produce a break even estimation result.

 

What if my electricity consumption is low?

The calculator does not work for properties with an average electricity consumption under 450 kWh per month – or under roughly €90.

This is because savings tend to be lower.

If your consumption is lower than 450 kWh and you’d still like a break even estimation for your property then follow these steps:

  1. Click ‘No’ to the answer ‘Do You Have an Electricity Bill to Hand?’
  2. Click ‘I don’t have an electricity bill, but I’m interested in a personalised study on my estimated savings.’
  3. Enter your contact details and hit ‘I WANT A PERSONALISED STUDY’

 

What if my my property is a new-build or new home?

The Solar Calculator uses your existing electricity consumption to calculate your break even.

It will not work if you have no electricity bill yet in your property.

If you still want a break even estimation for your new property in Spain you can follow these steps:

  1. Click ‘No’ to the answer ‘Do You Have an Electricity Bill to Hand?’
  2. Click ‘I don’t have an electricity bill, but I’m interested in a personalised study on my estimated savings.’
  3. Enter your contact details and hit ‘I WANT A PERSONALISED STUDY’

The result is shown in this window.

But you’ll be asked for an email address to send a fuller version of the report (it would be too complex to show all here).

If you decline, you can select ‘No’ and you won’t need to leave a phone number.

 

How accurate is the Solar Calculator?

The Solar Calculator is the most accurate solar calculator in Spain.

This is because:

  • It uses localised climate data for the Costa del Sol estimate the system size you need (in kW)
  • It uses recent quotes in 2024 to estimate the break even for systems of the same size
  • It provides two break even results: based on your electricity savings alone and based on your electricity savings + solar incentives
  • It estimates your annual savings based on your current electricity costs (€/kWh) with your current provider
  • It accounts for a slight and normal decline in the output of your solar panels and an inflation rate of 1.9% over the next 10 years
