Step 1: Are you eligible?

You are eligible for funding if you are a tenant, lessee or owner and own or live on property in Frankfurt.

However, as a tenant you need the permission of your landlord.

Step 2: Apply for funding

The funding must be applied for before purchase.

You can find the funding application form here: Climate Bonus funding application

Please note that not only the material costs of a mini solar system are eligible for funding, but also the costs for the necessary wiring and connection systems required to operate the system (such as the installation of outdoor sockets if none are available). However, only up to the amount of the module costs.

Step 3: Buy your balcony solar system

Choose the right mini solar system for you. The decisive factors are where you want to place it (balcony, garden or flat roof) and how many watts you need.

Step 4: Register your balcony solar system

As a new solar system owner, you only have to register your system in the market master data register.

Register with the Federal Network Agency here: www.marktstammdatenregister.de

Since April 26, 2024: Registration with a network operator is no longer necessary .

Step 5: Request a payout

Once you have purchased your mini solar system and installed it at the location you specified, you must now submit your proof of use. As soon as your proof of use has been checked, you will receive the subsidy amount.

  • 1. Apply for funding

    Apply for the climate bonus from the city of Frankfurt and get up to 50% of your costs back. Do you have the Frankfurt Pass? Then you will even receive a subsidy of 75%.
