New Grants announced for Solar PV Systems
New grants have been announced by SEAI for installing Photovoltaic systems on houses built before 2011. The grants are very generous;
- €900 per Kw for up to 2Kw, then €300 for up to a further 2kw with batteries (total 4kw).
- €600 for battery storage, so you can use your own electricity at night
- Up to €3,000 grant support for a 4kw system with a battery
- A 4kw system with a small battery would cost less than €5000 plus installation and VAT, so this becomes a very viable proposition for most households.
- Solar panels provided by Solartricity come with a 25 year production warranty so you get free electricity from your system for decades.
- Help the environment AND reduce household running costs.
We operate as wholesalers providing a very competitive range of products to professional installers around the country, who are registered with SEAI and approved for grant assisted installation.
Please call us and we can provide you with a quotation and direct you to trustworthy installers in your area.
There are terms and conditions of course;
- When the work is completed, your house must be at a BER rating of C or better
- Systems up to 7 panels (about 2.2kw) do not require planning but if you want a larger system, you may wish to consult your local planning authority to see if a system over 7 panels can be exempt from planning.
- You will need to pay a BER assessor to issue a certificate after the work is done.
