It's free, and you can get the ball rolling with this quick and easy form.
If you are happy with the guide quote, then one of our engineers will visit your property. They will discuss everything with you in detail, and will inspect everything from your roof to electrics to any shading to make sure we can design the best system for you and your needs.
Once we've visited your property, we will send you a full system design proposal along with a finalised quote. Your solar engineer will follow up to go through everything with you and answer any questions you may have. Again this is entirely free.
As an approved SEAI registered solar installer, your installation will likely be applicable for the SEAI grant (up to €2,400). Once you've picked your final solar design then it's time to fill in the SEAI grant application form, and we'll guide you through the whole process. ESB Networks also need to be informed of all solar PV installations, but don't worry, we'll take care of that for you.
The day has come. Our installation team will attend and install your solar PV equipment on the roof. Then our electricians will install the electrical equipment inside your house. It normally takes 1-2 days altogether.

Facts and Figures, from our installations completed between January and September 2023. From more info, take a look at our page on 2023 Installations, so far...
Thanks to our valued customers and dedicated team, we've fitted a total of 2,149 individual solar panels to roofs across Ireland.
Those panels will make nearly 750 MWh of electricity per year for the next 25 years.
All that electricity could boil enough water for even the thirstiest people.
Or that electricity could wash the clothes of an army.
These panels should reduce Ireland's CO2 emissions by 191 tonnes every year for their 25-year lifespan.
So far in 2023, we've fitted solar panels in Dublin, Meath, Westmeath, Kildare, Wicklow, Laois, Louth, Kilkenny, Cork, Limerick, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Roscommon & Cavan.
At the start of 2023, PureVolt Solar was made up of a dedicated team of 8 people. During the past 6 months, we've hired 6 new staff members, making the PureVolt Solar team 15 members strong — and growing!
We currently have 5 vans on the road installing - we use our own installation teams - and 2 electric cars for the engineers doing site surveys.
Just check out our reviews - we are very proud of our current ratings of 4.9 / 5.

Yes. Solar panels work whenever there is daylight and will still work on rainy or overcast days in Ireland. On those days, your panels won't function at their maximum capacity so you will generate less electricity than you might do in a sunnier climate. Even so, a well-placed home with 20m2 of solar panels could expect to generate around 3,600kWh of electricity per year. That's around 50% of a typical home's annual consumption.
Unused electricity can be stored in a battery and consumed later. If there is no battery or if it is already full, then any excess energy will be returned to the grid. From summer 2022, homeowners will be paid for the contributions they make to the grid.
The installation of solar panels on domestic properties is exempt from planning permission. Since the 7th of October 2022, there is no longer a limit to the area of solar panels which can be installed on rooftops of homes, anywhere in the country. Solar installations will be able to cover the entire roof of a house. The 12m2 or 50% roof limit which previously applied to houses has been removed nationwide.
Solar panels are robust and require little maintenance. They usually last around 20-30 years. After that time, they won't stop working but their efficiency is likely to drop off significantly.
Yes. As an SEAI registered company, we can help you to claim a government grant of up to €2,400 toward the cost of your solar PV installation. Just ask and we'll be happy to guide you through the whole process.
If you move house after installing solar panels, you now have added selling point and improved the BER rating, increasing the sale value of your home. The SEAI solar PV grant is tied to the property, so you can get the grant again for your new home.
The price of a solar PV installation varies a lot depending on many different factors. But, as a rough guide, the total price for a typical domestic system starts around €6,000, minus the SEAI grant.
Honest answer: we don't know until we talk to you. But it's a core part of our values that we always tell people upfront if we don't think solar will be a cost-effective energy solution for their home. If you won't be better off with solar, it's our job to tell you why and then leave you in peace.
