According to reports, the Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security has launched a 200 million euro subsidy plan to help poor families install solar panels at home to save electricity bills. The project period is 2024-2025.

The project stipulates that families with an annual income of less than 15,000 euros, or families with at least four minor children and an annual income of less than 30,000 euros, can receive the subsidy. According to data from the Italian National Bureau of Statistics, 8.9% of households in Italy are in energy poverty. If a 6 kW photovoltaic power generation system with batteries is installed, 75% of electricity bills can be saved. It is reported that the funds will be mainly used in the southern region, and 80% of the funds will be used in Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Molise, Puglia, Sardinia and Sicily region.
