Solar PV Grants
Find out about the Solar PV grants available to you.
Turn your home into a renewable power station! Now SEAI offers homeowners a grant of up to €3,800 to support the installation of Solar PV panels and battery energy storage systems. This will reduce the electricity you currently purchase from your supplier and save you money.
It is desirable to maximise the amount of solar electricity you use in your home by sizing the solar PV system to meet your demand, and by using energy storage solutions. Support is available to all owners of dwellings built and occupied before 2011. The grant is available for all new Solar PV installations from Tuesday 31st July 2018.
You can claim the HRI tax credit after the end of the tax year if your qualifying expenditure has reached the minimum amount of €4,405 before VAT (a total of €5,000) and you have paid income tax. Any unused tax credit can be rolled over into the following year.
The Solar Photovoltaic PV panels transform daylight directly into electricity and is a rapidly expanding market worldwide. The panels are producing DC voltage during daylight hours. It’s converted immediately to normal ESB compatible voltage and distributed throughout your property. It is possible to export the excess power back to the grid, or use it for space or water heating. The sun provides us with an unlimited and reliable source of free energy. Solar PV panels harness this free and natural energy and convert it into useful electricity.
Just imagine that you could get all your electricity from the panels during periods of the day.
PV systems are suitable for commercial applications, new and existing dwellings. We design them basing on a customer’s budget, electricity needs, size/shape and a PV system of orientation of panel space.
In a typical 3 bed house (using 3290 k 1.5 – 2 kWp (about 12 to 15m2) could provide 50% of your annual electricity requirements. We provide installation services for: Existing houses, New developments, Bars & restaurants, Commercial buildings, Dairy farms, Pig & poultry farms, Shops & stores, Warehouses.
1) Clean Energy Ireland examines your energy consumptions and proposes a system to meet a percentage of that demand.
2) Solar PV Modules are mounted on the best available roof space. (Special brackets can be installed for ground mounting).
3) The solar inverter (converts DC voltage to AC voltage) is connected to the main distribution board.
4) When the Solar PV Panels are producing more electricity than you use, the surplus is fed back to the grid or sent to an immersion/heater.
5) At times of higher demand the shortfall is made up by power drawn from the grid
We believe in providing our customers with industry leading quality on all of the products that we install at Clean Energy Ireland.
All of our Solar Panels have been laboratory tested and awarded NSAI Agrement Certification. You can rest assured that any panels you have installed provides the highest levels of safety, durability and quality.
