Cyprus has been actively promoting the adoption of photovoltaic systems as a clean and sustainable energy source. In a recent development, the parliament of Cyprus passed a law regarding the required documents for PV system installations, specifically regarding the building permit. The amendment provides that the issuance of a building permit for the installation of photovoltaic systems on the roofs of an existing licensed building will no longer be required. The law has been enacted but is still pending implementation.

This amendment, which was passed in early June 2023, aims to simplify the process of a photovoltaic system installation in Cyprus. In this blog post, you can learn more about simplifying solar installations.

The installation of photovoltaic systems in Cyprus has experienced a significant surge in demand over the past few years leading to delays and frustration. With the decision to remove the building permit as a required document for the application for the installation of a PV system, the process gets simplified, and the installation is completed faster.

The new law does not apply to buildings that have been declared as preserved or ancient monuments and fall within a controlled area based on the Antiquities Law, areas of protection of archaeological sites, or a special airport zone.

The removal of the building permit requirement for PV systems in Cyprus is a game-changer as it will enable faster installations. This amendment encourages individuals and businesses to embrace solar energy for a greener, more sustainable future. Get in contact with Solar Limassol and learn more information.
