Pv Solar Panel Systems To Suit All Family Sizes

A Pv solar panel system must be sized correctly so that the homeowner can get the full benefit of the system. If a system is sized too small, then the homeowner will not see a reduction in their bill and if the Pv system is sized too big then there will be a lot of surplus electricity. The best way to work out what size system will suit your needs is to avail of the FREE home survey that we offer, simply register your details and we will call you to arrange a time that is convenient for you.

Grants for Solar Panels in Ireland

It has been 3 years since the government announced the first round of grants for pv solar panels and these generous grants have encouraged homeowners to embrace the “new technology”. The truth is that Pv Solar panels are not exactly a new technology, they have been used in homes throughout Europe for the past 25 years, however Ireland was slow to join the trend.

In 2022 the grant amount changed as well as the criteria to avail of the grant. The grants are are now available to all homes built before 2021 and are capped at a maximum of €2,400. In September 2022 we will finally see the introduction of the Micro Generation Support Scheme (MSS), whereby homeowners and businesses will be paid for any extra electricity that goes to the national grid from their solar panels.

More information about the MSS scheme can be found on Gov.ie at the following link

Do We Have The Right Climate?

PV Solar Panels need sunlight to create electricity. The trees, the plants and the grass all need sunlight to survive. Daylight is sunlight, whether it is warm outside or not, once we have daylight we have sunlight. Ireland has one of the greenest landscapes in the world therefore solar panels in Ireland work perfectly.

People often ask if PV Solar Panels will create power in the winter months, the answer is yes! We have less hours of daylight which means that the amount of power it produces on a short winter day is less than what a pv solar panel system can produce on a long brighter day.

Brands of Solar Panels in Ireland

There is quite a variety of brands of solar panels in Ireland. Any high-quality panel, regardless of the brand is known as a Tier 1 panel. Each brand of panel will have a range of power output sizes for example the Italian brand Peimar offer Pv solar panels in output sizes of 365w. The German manufactured panel QCells come in a wider variety ranging from 345w to 390w, generally the larger the watt of the panel the larger it is in physical size. Longi now come in outputs of 440w.

In simple terms you may need 11 x 365w panels to achieve a 4-kilowatt system, but you could achieve a 4kw system by using 10 x 440w panels. This is beneficial when you are restricted with roof space.
