Installing a 3kW – 20 sq. m residential solar PV system will generate around 2,600kWh of electricity a year, which is over 40% of the average annual electricity demand of an Irish home. You will start saving on your monthly bill from day one and your savings will grow with time. As utility rates increase, you continue to collect free and clean energy from the sun. Solar PV panels are a risk-free investment that pays for itself many times over
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Assessing exactly how much you can reduce your carbon footprint by depends on a number of factors including the size of the installation, how ideally the site is located, the number of occupants in the building, the lifestyles of the occupants, etc. but a 15% saving on your carbon foot print is commonly used estimate.
Government Grants for Residential Solar PV
Currently there are SEAI homeowner grants of up to €2,400 for dwellings built and occupied before 2021.
Improve Your BER Rating & the Value of Your Home
If and when it comes time to sell your home, particularly in a slow-moving property market, having solar panels would be a tremendous advantage, substantially increasing the value and saleability of your property. Solar panels top the list of non-essential items that property buyers are looking for.
Property buyers are increasingly aware of the BER rating system and all property advertisements must now show a home’s BER rating. Solar PV panels will help improve your BER rating, raising the value and desirability of your home.
