Part L

Making your development Part L compliant using Solar PV through Activ8 Solar Energies

Why Choose Activ8 Solar Energies

Whether it’s a domestic solar system, a commercial solar system or a new development, we have the track record to deliver!

Part L has made its way into every consultant engineer and architect’s lexicon over the past number of years, and so too has the need for solar PV panels on some new build developments. Rather than specifying a 600l cylinder for thermal paneling needed to pass Part L, we have found that Solar PV is often the most cost effective way to both pass Part L and help prevent the costly heating of a massively oversized hot water cylinder.

We will work closely with you to design a solar pv system which ensures compliance to Part L using the following three components:

  • Exported DEAP XML File 
  • A copy of site house/map plans
  • A notice of any shading issues on site

We will then specify a Solar PV system to meet Part L compliance. In doing so, we ensure the MPEC and MPCPC are no greater than their permitted values. Once this criteria is met, a Part L Specification, along with completed DEAP XML file, are exported by us for your specific needs.

A Bio on Our PV Experience

As Ireland’s leading solar specialists, our team here at Activ8 Energies were not happy to simply sit back on our laurels after being officially confirmed as the SEAI’s highest installer of solar thermal panels in Ireland, so in early 2012 we established our Solar PV division called Solar NI (based out of Lisburn) at the time to service the growing Northern Irish solar energy market. This was due to the presence of Renewables Obligation scheme’s incentives which meant a customer got paid for generating their own excess electricity. Within a year, we outgrew our office in Lisburn and moved to a larger warehousing and office facility to facilitate both our Solar PV Wholesaling and our growing sales team in Northern Ireland.

In the space of just 3 years, we have installed over 1,000 Solar PV Systems between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and have established direct working relationships with the top global solar panel manufacturers including Suntech Solar Modules, Schletter Mounting Systems, Solis String Inverters and Enphase Energies Micro Inverters.

With over 15,000 solar panels installed, in retro fit, new build and commercial applications, our Solar PV team (our installs are not sub-contracted) have built an enviable reputation across the island of Ireland, both north and south of the border. All of our installs are carried out to the highly regulated standards of MCS; standards which are neither enforced nor adhered to by many in the Republic of Ireland. We now bring this PV experience and MCS quality work to burgeoning Part L installations across the Republic.
