How does it work?

First Ballpark Quote

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.

Site Survey

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.

Design Proposal & Finalised Quote

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.

SEAI Grant Application & informing ESB Networks

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.

Installation

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.

System goes live

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.

Free Hot water

Maximise your solar efficiency by sending your surplus energy to your hot water cylinder to get free hot water and reduce your reliance on the grid, gas or oil.

Save Money

Reduce your electricity costs by installing solar PV.

Ireland has ideal weather for solar?

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.

Why Solar?

Installing solar PV provides a hedge against inflation and energy price volatility, allowing you to fix tomorrow's energy costs, today. Not only does it increase your savings by reducing your annual energy bills by up to 70%, it reduces your reliance on fossil fuels and makes a positive impact on your carbon footprint

The average home produces a carbon footprint of 7.8 tonnes of CO2 per annum. By Installing solar PV and battery storage systems your footprint is reduced by up to 2.4 tonnes per annum, which is equal to a transatlantic flight.

It's good for the planet, it's good for your pocket. There's never been a better time to install solar PV and battery storage systems.

Commercial calculation on solar pv installation in Ireland

Cost and Financial Returns

Residential solar PV installations cost range between €1,600 and €2,000 per kWp installed. Costs depend on a number of factors - roof access, roof covering, pitch and electrical installation costs. For a 4kWp system fully installed the system will cost in the region of approximately €6,400 and €8,000 ex vat. A single kWp will give an estimated saving of around €254 per year, this results in an estimated saving of €760 per year for a 4kWp system, assuming a utilisation rate of 75% of energy generated.

The panels and the mounting equipment will last 25 years or more with the solar inverter likely needing to be replaced in this time frame. The return on investment comes in the form of significantly reduced electricity bills. Each kWh generated and consumed on-site from the solar PV system is worth approx. c.0.30 (Estimated unit rate of electricity)

Over the 25 year lifespan of the system, one kWp will generate roughly 750-900kWh per year. That is around 20,000kWh over the lifetime of the system which works out at a cost of 0.7c per kWh of solar generated.
