Since the beginning of 2022, an increase in the cost of consumption has been observed in Italy, which has affected gas, electricity and water bills. In recent months, the government has tried to tackle the problem, but with little success. As in the analysis made in a previous article, at the end of 2021 the cost of electricity and gas had obviously increased. Unfortunately, the outlook for the future does not seem to be improving and the increase has reached 40%.
In recent weeks, also due to the current geopolitical situation determined by the conflict in Ukraine, the cost of fuel has exceeded 2 euros. Italian families and businesses are now feeling the brunt of this. That’s why everyone tries to find practical solutions that reduce costs and save money. Of these, here is what could be the best solution to rising energy costs.
But first let’s try to understand what this push depends on. According to statements by the Minister for Ecological Transition, there has been an increase in the price of CO2 emission permits (ETS). Another cause is the increase in the prices of natural gas and oil on the international market. So what is the best prospect for not being totally subjected to this situation?
Here’s what could be the best solution to increase your bills thanks to tax deductions and sustainable energy savings
According to experts, one of the most concrete possibilities for Italian citizens to survive price increases is photovoltaics. The installation of a photovoltaic system is certainly an investment that has been giving excellent results for some time. It is also true that the initial outlay can seem huge. Yet the reality is that only after a few years are the long-term savings and reduced expenses evident.
Photovoltaics, therefore, in addition to representing a green tool for the protection of the planet, is interesting because it reduces the impact of energy costs. Indeed, by self-producing energy, you save on all your bills. Indeed, we have seen how practical it is to install an induction hob that already has a photovoltaic system.
Moreover, since the energy produced is not entirely consumed, it is put back on sale. After a few years, GSE will buy it itself from the owner of the factory. Therefore, the more you consume, the greater the savings, especially after covering the costs of installing the system. If the user’s need corresponds to 10kWh per day and the system is able to produce the same energy, the expense will be nil.
A photovoltaic kit costs around 1,000 euros per kW, while complete installation kits can cost up to 2,000 euros per kW installed. With the tax deductions, however, the costs are also reduced by 50%.
