It's the way things are going. 50,000 Irish homes now have rooftop solar panels, and thousands more are joining them every year. The technology is available and affordable. And with a government grant of up to €2,400, it's a no-brainer.Get started
The homes of the future won't be powered by fossil fuels. In fact, the switch to more advanced technologies is happening right now. That's because there has never been a better time to go solar. Energy prices are going up, and so are global temperatures. But the cost of going solar has come down massively. Right now, the government is offering a grant of up to €2,400 to reduce the cost even more. Why wait?Get a quote

It's true. Ireland actually has an ideal climate for solar electricity generation. That's because PV technologies use light, not heat. For example, in Sub-Saharan Africa, solar panels degrade more quickly because of the extreme heat. Ireland has lots of light, but not too much heat. Perfect.
We give you the naked facts in plain English so you can make your own decisions. Ask us anything.
No pushy sales tactics. Our aim is to help you go solar, not spend lots of money.
We don't dabble. Installing solar panels is what we do and we're very good at it.
We're not the cheapest. Our prices reflect the best value and great service. No compromises on quality.
We want a greener, cleaner Ireland with as much solar on roofs as possible. We lead by example.
From your initial enquiry to installation and beyond, we won't leave you waiting.
We can provide a first ballpark quote using little more than your Eircode and a few bits of information from you. We look up your house on google maps to give you an idea what might be possible for solar on your house. This includes costs, electricity production forecasts, grant values and payback period. It's free, and you can get the ball rolling with this 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.
Flick on the kettle and start enjoying free electricity. Of course, we'll be in touch to check that you're happy with every aspect of the service.
If you're building or renovating your home, talk to us about how we can integrate your switch to solar with your existing plans. We can help you to get everything done in one go with minimum hassle for you.
By buying and installing your solar panels with us, you will be eligible to apply for the SEAI Solar Electricity Grant. This provides up to €2,400 toward the cost of your solar PV installation.
There is a lot more to solar than just fixing some PV panels to your roof. We use specialist solar design software to get exactly the right solution for you and your home.

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.
