Solar Panels Waterford
Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels for homes are an ideal means of reducing your domestic electricity bill and enjoying clean, renewable power, in Waterford and all over Ireland.
Waterford homes are ideally placed to benefit from PV solar panel technology, as being in the sunny south-east of Ireland means they stand to enjoy more sunshine than homes in other parts, and will therefore produce more electricity.
But contrary to popular belief, brilliant and direct sunshine is not actually needed for PV solar panels for homes to produce enough power to meet a significant portion of domestic electricity demand – which means Waterford homes can generate their own power on cloudy and/or rainy days too. That is because PV solar panels work in any daylight conditions, even if gloomy or rainy, and many actually operate more efficiently at lower temperatures – which suits the Irish climate too.
Talk to Kavanagh Engineering if you are considering PV solar panels for your County Waterford home, and we will provide expert advice on the best system for you.
Detailed survey and reports
We will first carry out a site survey of your home, taking into account such considerations as:
- Available roof, wall, or ground space
- Aspect orientation of your roof
- Your current annual electrical usage
- Your geographic location
- Your available budget
We will then provide you with quotations for a number of options as regards PV solar panels for your home. As you would expect, the ones that will be capable of producing more power will also be more expensive. By also giving you quotations for other and cheaper systems, we really are giving you the opportunity to make the best choice for you.
We will also provide you with detailed forecasts for how much electricity you could realistically expect to see produced by each system we quote for, to further help you make your decision by means of a long-term cost/benefit analysis.
Compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations
All PV solar panels for homes systems we design and install are fully compliant with Part L of the Building Regulations (2011), which deals with the conservation of fuel and energy.
The regulation itself states: ‘that a building shall be designed and constructed so as to ensure that the energy performance of the building is such as to limit the amount of energy required for the operation of the building and the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with this energy use, insofar as is reasonably practicable.’
Building regulations requirements for new dwellings also prescribe that a reasonable proportion of the energy consumption to meet the energy performance of a dwelling is provided by renewable energy sources.
PV solar panel systems for homes can help meet these requirements if properly designed and installed, and at Kavanagh Engineering, we make sure to do exactly that.
