Kosovo rescinds construction permits for household prosumers

Kosovo’s infrastructure ministry said on Tuesday that prosumers will no longer require construction permits, a stipulation that had been impeding the implementation of solar projects.

The decree will not take effect immediately, nor will it include businesses.

“Citizens [prosumers] will no longer be asked to provide a construction permit for the installation of solar panels whose capacity is intended for household consumption and does not exceed 7 kW,” infrastructure minister Liburn Aliu said in a statement on Tuesday.

Kosovo’s government and energy regulator ZRRE have faced criticism from experts and solar panel installation companies for not updating laws to facilitate faster and easier solar installation permitting for households and businesses.

Since the war ended in 1999, more than 70% of homes have been built without official approval, meaning that obtaining a legal permit for solar panel installation is virtually impossible.

Last month, ZRRE approved new renewables support scheme rules that will enable the installation of over 100 MW of prosumer capacity by 2031.

Recent data show that the country, which heavily relies on coal, currently has only 7-8 MW of installed prosumer capacity.
