Why Solar PV?

  • NEW SEAI Grant: With €700/kWp and €1,000 for battery storage, you can avail of a grant up to €3,800.

  • Free, Guaranteed Electricity: Our Solar PV systems carry a 25 year performance warranty, meaning you’ll be getting free electricity for at least that period and actually longer.

  • Heating your water: As well as producing electricity for use all around the home, when there is an excess of supply, it will heat your water before being exported to the grid.
  • Saves the environment: Solar PV helps reduce the emission of CO2 and reduce the need for electricity generation from fossil fuels and therefore protects the environment.
  • Battery Storage: With an SEAI grant of €1,000 for battery storage, you can now save excess electricity and use it when you need it!
