Value of feed-in tariffs for PV solar energy for residential in France 2011-2019

Feed-in tariffs (FIT), also called renewable energy payments or standard offer contracts are political mechanisms intending to facilitate investments in renewable energy systems. With feed-in tariffs, the government can intervene into the energy market by artificially creating investment advantages for the support of renewable energies.
The French government also grants self-consumption bonuses to households using PV installations. In 2019, an installation with a power of less or equal to 100 kWp yielded 90 €/kWp.

French feed-in tariffs

PV electricity price has been steadily decreasing since 2011. From 46 c€/kWh during the 2nd quarter, the price had dropped under 25 c€/kWh in the beginning of the year 2017. After a dramatic drop in early 2017, which saw solar PV feed-in tariffs fall below 16 c€/kWh, it has been more or less stable since. Feed-in tariffs for PV solar energy amounted to 15.8 c€/kWh for the last quarter of 2019.
On May, 9th 2017, a new tariff decree came into effect. It sets new conditions to sell domestic production surplus to the State. This rule includes every PV equipment ≤100 kWp installed on residential buildings. According to the source, decrees from the first and second quarters of 2019 are similar to the decree from 2017.
During the 2nd quarter of 2019, the buying price of electricity surplus from PV installations of 100 kWp and less was at 0.06 euro per kW peak.

FIT aren't exclusive to smaller residential installations. Depending on the installed power of photovoltaic panels, other feed-in tariffs will apply.
