The SEAI are now offering homeowners a grant of up to €3,800 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 €700 for every kWp up to max 4kWp (€2800 max grant). Any installation over 2kWp must install a battery (€1000 max grant).
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
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.
