Domestic Solar Panels

What is Solar PV?

Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels, most commonly installed on rooftops, turn sunlight into electricity without producing carbon emissions. This can be used to power your home, heat your water or be stored in a battery for later use. Through the Microgeneration Support Scheme you can also receive 21c/kWh credit for any excess electricity you export.

Benefits of Solar Power

  • Save over 50% on your homes electricity*

  • Fulfill up to 70% of your hot water needs

  • Improve your home’s BER rating

  • Increase your home’s resale value

  • Reduce your carbon footprint

SEAI grants available

There are SEAI grants up to €2,100 available to you right now. The recent Government decision to abolish VAT on the supply and installation of solar panels has now lowered costs too. On average it takes less than 5 years for your investment in a PV panel system to pay for itself.

0% VAT Rates on Solar Panels

The Government recently cut the rate of VAT on the supply and installation of solar panels from 13.5% to 0%. We welcome this decision and will pass on the full discount to all our customers as well as retaining all our highly competitive prices for supply and installation. Another step on Ireland’s journey to cleaner, cheaper, renewable energy.

EV Chargers

Did you know you can charge your EV with Solar PV? EV chargers allows you to divert energy from your solar PV system directly to your electric car. This is essentially free travel.

Solar PV Potential Savings

The above is based on estimated installation costs, self-consumption and annual solar generation from south facing roof in Dublin City. Savings base on average electricity rate of 41c/kWh and microgeneration rate of 21c/kWh that is exported. All prices calculated at 0% since 1st May 2023.

*An average solar PV system can save over 50% per year on electricity, based on an average consumption of a house being 4200kWh/units. 8 x Solar PV panels or 3.2kWp will generate approx. 2700 units per year (50% of 4200,kWh/units = 2100kWh/units).
