Our Wholesale Solar 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, Solis String Inverters and Enphase Energies Micro Inverters whilst adding exclusive distribution rights for ESDEC Mounting Systems and Tesla Powerwall Batteries.
With over 18,500 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.
