China Ready To Set 3 GW Quota For Residential Solar In 2019

Sources have told pv magazine the authorities are ready to restart the nation’s residential rooftop segment and have also agreed upon subsidy payments for other distributed generation and utility-scale projects.

China

A source at China’s National Energy Association has told pv magazine the authorities in Beijing are set to kick-start the nation’s dormant rooftop solar market by setting a 3 GW quota for 2019.

If confirmed, that would equate to around 600,000 household systems qualifying for a subsidy which a participant at yesterday’s FIT talks in the capital said would be set at CNY0.18/kWh ($0.027) for this year.

The rooftop market has been in deep freeze since the Chinese government announced its plan to curtail central subsidies, on May 31 last year.

With the news expected to be confirmed before the Chinese new year holidays begin on February 4, rumors about the quota and subsidy levels saw solar shares leap in China today, with GCL Solar seeing an 8% rise in its stock and Sungrow a 10% improvement.

pv magazine’s source at yesterday’s subsidy talks said participants had agreed on a FIT payment of CNY0.10/kWh for distributed generation other than residential, with the tariff set to decrease by CNY0.01 at the start of each quarter after it is confirmed.

For utility-scale projects, tariffs of CNY0.4/kWh, CNY0.45 and CNY0.55 are expected to be set, with the payment level dependent on the sunshine resources enjoyed by a particular region. The most generous utility-scale FIT would apply to the populous east and south of the huge nation, with the CNY0.45 payment applied in the northeast, west and southwest, and the lowest payment level earmarked for the north and far northwest. A special rate would apply to Tibet.
