That of aceRinnovabili sul incentive spread decree it might seem a threat of retaliation, were it not for the fact that the new regulation awaiting conversion into law could really cancel the payment of the rent in favor of the subjects who have transferred the surface rights to the photovoltaic systems.
It is not automatic, but if following the spreads incentives photovoltaic energy producers will still see their revenues eroded, already affected by other tax measures, many companies in the sector could default and no longer honor the payment of the fees.
At risk are precisely the owners of the land on which the photovoltaic systems are installed, but also the Municipalities that have signed agreements to host the systems and collect the related taxes. This is a lot of money because the incentive spread decree it affects 11 thousand mW of the 18 thousand mW of photovoltaic power installed in Italy.
That of ace Renewables against it spreads incentives it's a real battle for life. The association of producers, industry and services for renewable energy has already written to the President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano and to the European Commissioner for Energy, Gunther Oettinger. In addition, the opinion of unconstitutionality signed by the president emeritus of the Constitutional Court, Valerio Onida, agitates.
The last letter was sent to the address of ANCI (National Association of Italian Municipalities), Coldiretti, Confagricoltura and Federfondiaria - the trade associations involved in the risk of zero rent - to ask for support in the actions it will initiate in order to prevent the conversion. in law of the standard spreads incentives.
According to aceRenewables, the incentive spread decree it effectively cuts the resources already allocated to solar plants that are already in operation and could destroy something like 10 thousand jobs in the renewable sector. It would also bring the curtain down definitively on photovoltaic investments in Italy, which have already fallen by 58% from 2007 to today.
The reasons for assoRinnovabili are contained in the letter that the association sent to Prime Minister Matteo Renzi along with a list of alternative proposals to spreads incentives, and which he now hopes will be the basis for a satisfactory mediation.
