Solar Calculators for you to play with

Fancy playing with the numbers yourself? Wondering what difference it makes if you fast your panels West/ East vs South? Or how many panels you need to charge an EV? Our solar calculators are for you.

Simple enough to be usable, but with enough detail to produce useful numbers. They all come pre-populated with standard numbers for PV Solar installations here in Ireland, and you can adjust everything from your roof angle to electricity tariffs to customise the results to your own property too.

Solar Generation Calculator

The big one. Pop in the number of panels you'd like, and it'll tell you everything from the space it would take on your roof to annual bill savings. Solar Generation Calculator

Why choose PureVolt Solar?

Straight talking

We give you the naked facts in plain English so you can make your own decisions. Ask us anything.

No sales team

You'll speak to engineers, not salespeople. We aim to give you the best information about solar, that's all.

Solar specialists

We don't dabble. Installing solar panels is what we do, and we're very good at it.

Sensible pricing

We're not the cheapest. Our prices reflect the best value and great service. No compromises on quality.

We believe

We want a greener, cleaner Ireland with as much solar on roofs as possible. We lead by example.

Quick turnaround

From your initial enquiry to installation and beyond, we won't leave you waiting.

Every step, from start to finish

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 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.

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 40%) 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.


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.
