Financial planning chart

A smart investment

Over the lifetime of a typical solar PV system, the electricity it produces will be 2-4 times cheaper than buying from the national grid. And with a government grant of up to €2,400 reducing the initial outlay, it's a pragmatic investment.

Get started

Let's face it...

No-one can predict the future. But the coming years are likely to see money in the bank go down in value and energy prices go up. By installing solar panels on your home, you can increase the value of your property while locking in your energy prices for a generation. Solar panels are built to last, and you can expect to see a return on investment for the next 25 years. When you factor in the government grant of up to €2,400, switching to solar is an investment that's hard to beat.

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.

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.

Return on investment

An appropriately sized home solar PV system can be expected to pay for itself back 6 to 9 years. During that time, you've insured yourself against fluctuations in the energy market. Afterwards, it's free electricity all the way.

Is Ireland sunny enough for solar panels?

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.

What happens to any excess power which I don't use?

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.

Do I need planning permission?

The installation of solar panels on domestic properties is exempt from planning permission, up to 12m2 or 50% of your roof space, whichever is the lesser. New rules are coming into force in 2022 to increase this limit to 60m2.

More about planning permission for solar panels in Ireland.

How long do solar panels last?

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.

Are any grants available to reduce the installation costs?

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.

What if I move house?

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.

How much does it cost?

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.

Are solar panels right for me?

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.
