Solar energy: taxpayers will be exempt from ICMS

Published in the Official Gazette of the State, Law 8.922/2020, authored by Congressman André Ceciliano (PT) and which was sanctioned by Governor Wilson Witzel, determines that taxpayers who have small generators of photovoltaic solar energy, which inject into the electricity grid the production of solar panels that exceed their consumption, will have exemption in the Tax on Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS) that is charged for the generation of energy.

The exemption will be directed only to consumers who have a distributed microgeneration of photovoltaic solar electricity with installed power less than or equal to 75 kilowatts or who have distributed minigeneration of photovoltaic solar electricity with installed power greater than 75 kilowatts and less than or equal to 5 megawatts, connected to the distribution network through consumer unit installations.

In addition, the exemptions do not apply to the cost of availability, reactive energy, power demand, connection charges, and any other amounts charged by the distributor. The measure will be valid until December 31, 2032.
