SKOPJE (N. Macedonia), June 16 (SeeNews) - North Macedonia's government will invest a total of 60 million denars ($1 million/976,000 euro) in subsidies to households for procurement and installment of solar panels in 2022, the economy ministry said.

Households can receive subsidies of up to 30%, or up to 62,000 denars each, to buy and install roof solar panels for the production of electricity for personal needs or for sale, North Macedonia's economy ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

Households can sell their surplus electricity to any electricity supplier, including the universal supplier EVN, the ministry added.

Furthermore, the maximum installed capacity of solar panels has now been increased to 6 kW from 4 kW per household. For small business consumers, the maximum solar power system size that can be installed is 40 kW, compared to the previous 20 kW.
