Installation process guide

You've picked your PV solar system. What happens next to go from solar design proposal to your house generating free, clean electricity?

You've selected your solar design & final quote. What happens next?

ESB Networks Application

The next step is to apply to ESB Networks to let them know that a PV Solar system is being installed. We'll take care of that for you. It usually takes around 20 days for the application to be approved by ESB Networks.

SEAI Grant Application (optional)

We are an SEAI approved PV installation company, so the installation costs are eligible for a grant for most households. Now is the time to apply for the grant. You'll need to have that application approved before any works can take place. Don't worry, the process is quite straight forward and we are here to help you through it all. You can also use our SEAI Solar PV Grant Application Guide to help you with your application. More info on this grant can be found on our SEAI Solar Grant Guide page.

Deposit & plan installation date

Before now, everything was free and there was no commitment. It's time now to set things in stone. The deposit (normally 30%) would be due and it's time to plan a good time for our team to come and install your new PV solar system. The solar installation process normally takes around 2 days.

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 the house and connect it all together.

Commissioning & balance payment

"Commissioning" is the fancy term for turning your new solar system on! The sun needs to be up to do that so we can do all the required tests. If it's too close to sunset on installation day then we'll pop back to officially commission the system. Once it's officially running then the balance would be due.

Enjoy free electricity & receive your grant

Flick on the kettle and start enjoying free, clean electricity. We'll be in touch to check that you're happy with every aspect of the service & run through the performance numbers with you.

As soon as your system is up and running we let the SEAI know so they can process your grant. Usually it takes them 4-6 weeks before the money is in your account.
