How does it work?
Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels use daylight to produce electricity.
These panels generate DC electricity when exposed to light. This DC current is then passed through an inverter and converted in to AC current, which can be used to run your household appliances and electronics- tv, fridge, cooker, washing machine etc.
The amount of electricity a solar PV panel can generate depends on the size of the solar PV system, the type of panels, the geographical location and the direction & tilt that the panels are installed.
A solar PV system usually includes solar panels, a mounting system (either roof mounts or grounding mounting) and an inverter. You could also add a battery for storing excess energy produced during daylight hours for later use.
The SEAI currently offers Solar PV grants to householders subject to certain conditions. For more information, please contact us or visit their website

WHY GO SOLAR?
Simple - if money fell from the sky, would you catch it?
Save money on your electricity bills - Solar PV saves you money from the first day it is switched on by reducing the amount of electricity you need to purchase from your current supplier. With electricity costs continuing to rise, it makes sense to future proof your electricity needs.
Improve your BER - by installing solar PV, you'll automatically improve your property's BER rating.
Increase your property value - as your BER rating improves so does the value of your property. We all want energy efficient homes that are cheap to run.
Reduce your emissions - solar pv is the efficient, cost effective carbon neutral option to power your home and electric vehicles.
