Solar PV Information & Grant

What is Solar PV?

Solar PV is the name given to the rooftop solar you see on homes and businesses. A typical solar PV system is made up of solar panels, invertor and optional battery storage.

Solar Panels

A solar panel consists of many photovoltaic cells linked together which convert light from the sun into electricity. Solar panels generate DC (direct current) electricity, which is then converted using a solar inverter to AC (alternating current – household utility frequency)

Solar Invertor

A solar inverter converts the (DC) output of a solar panel into utility frequency (AC) for use as electricity.

Solar Battery System

Solar Panels can generate more power than you actually require on certain days, a Battery Storage System will essentially store your unused electricity for later use.

Solar PV Grant Info

From Tuesday 31st July 2018 the new Solar PV Grant is available, applications can be made directly through the SEAI site (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland).


The grant offers homeowners up to €3,800 to support the installation of Solar PV panels and battery energy storage systems.

Support is available to all owners of dwellings built and occupied before 2011.

The grant offers €700 for every kWp up to max 4kWp. Any installation over 2kWp must install a battery. The grant includes €1,000 against the cost of a battery storage system.

Typicably a 1kW solar PV system would require 3 or 4 solar panels on your roof.
