Flemish Energy Minister Saturn Demir (N-VA) had already set a one-time compensation for solar panel owners, but the 31,000 heat pump owners were a bit hungry.
“Because many of the promises made in the past in this file were not kept, we have not made that mistake again,” Demir says. “Behind the scenes, all possibilities were first carefully studied and the current proposal was the result. It appears to be feasible and affordable.”
For owners of heat pumps with solar panels, which entered service before December 31, 2020, there is a premium on the premium for solar panels Fixed additional premium €1.163. About 530 cogeneration facilities or small wind turbines are eligible for the subsidy.
The Flemish government allocates 37.2 million euros to the compensation scheme.
It will take until the fall before you can apply for a new installment, because the State Council, among others, must give its advice first. After that, owners who already have a digital meter will have six months to apply for a premium. Owners who at that time still had the classic, must apply for their premium within six months after installing their digital meter.
