New grants for solar electricity

The SEAI are now offering homeowners a grant of up to €3,000 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 maximize 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 available is €900 for every kWp up to max 2kWp (€1800 max grant). €300 for every additional kWp up to 4kWp if you get a battery (grant available capped at €2400).

For 3kWp: You will receive €2100 for 3kWp solar panels plus €600 for the battery system.

For 4kWp: You will receive €2400 for 4kWp solar panels plus €600 for the battery system.

Any installation over 2kWp must install a battery (€600 max grant).

The home energy performance following the installation of solar panels must be BER C or better.

Cheaper electricity bills

On average, a 2kW solar PV system can save you between €250-€320 per year on your domestic electricity bill. This will make a big difference to your household running costs, allowing you to save for what really matters.

Improve your BER

By investing in solar PV, you will also be making an impact on the BER of your home. When it comes to selling your home, a higher BER will add value and help you achieve a higher sale price. 

Reduce your emissions

Generating your own renewable electricity also has benefits for our environment. The energy you consume will be clean energy which cuts down on your greenhouse gas emissions.
