Solar Panel Grants
Installing solar PV (photovoltaic) panels in your home offers three great benefits. First and foremost, it will help to reduce your electricity bills, typically by as much as €300 per bi monthly bill. Next, you’ll be helping the environment. And finally, when you come to sell your house, solar panels will improve your BER (Building Energy Rating).
And there’s more good news! Thanks to a generous system of supports from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), you can expect payback for your solar panels in a few short years. The SEAI currently offer home owners a grant of up to €3000 towards the installation costs of solar panels and associated battery storage solutions. There are a few terms and conditions, but the application process is extremely well designed and very easy to complete.
For home owners to qualify for the SEAI solar panel grant, the following conditions apply:
- The offer is open to owners of houses built and occupied before 2011
- The SEAI must not have previously issued a grant for solar panels at that address
- After installation, the home’s energy rating must be BER C or better
- SEAI approval is required prior to any works commencing.
