Firstly, congratulations!! Your new investment will save you money and help reduce Ireland's carbon footprint.
In order to make your life easier, we have put together an easy to follow, complete step-by-step guide to help guide you through the process of applying for your SEAI Solar PV Grant.
To make sure the entire grant process goes smoothly, everything related to the grant should be under one name: the application, bank account details, paperwork, and invoices.
After you have completed the grant application, please let us know whose name this is so we can ensure the paperwork and invoices match the name on the application. Otherwise, your grant payment may be delayed.
There are a few bits of information you'll be asked for during the application. We'd recommend you have the following to hand before getting started.
Your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). This is an 11-digit number that you'll find on the top right-hand side of your electricity bill.
Your PureVolt Solar Proposal. This contains the size of the system you are installing (in kWp). The SEAI will only pay for the system size that's mentioned on your application, so it's important to get this right.
The year your house was built and occupied. Usually, this is the date the meter was first installed in the house. Please note - your house must have been built and occupied before the 1st of January 2021 to qualify for this grant.
Details for the bank account you'll receive the grant payment into. This bank account should be under the same name as on the application.
Once you have all of those to hand, you are ready to go!
