Residential

Protect yourself against the rising electricity costs

Benefit and rely on a steady supply of renewable electricity to your
home for the foreseeable future to combat the unpredictable, rising
costs of electricity.

WHY YOU SHOULD INSTALL SOLAR PV

Real
cost savings

Your home relies on electricity and your PV system will enable you to cut the cost of your electricity bill by harnessing the free energy from the sun. Generate your own electricity and ensure substantial savings.

Energy
Security

Generating solar PV electricity for your home is reliable, predictable and bankable; making it a great way to provide energy security for your business for the foreseeable future.

Protection against
volatile energy prices

PV will enable you to reduce the ever-rising energy costs. Your savings will increase every time the prices go up!

Reduce
carbon emissions

The renewable energy you receive from the sun is sustainable and 100% free from carbon emissions.

Be a “green”
Home

Being “green” is becoming more and more important these days. A Solar PV system is the perfect way to improve the green credentials of your home.

low
maintenance

PV systems require very low maintenance. The solar panels should be cleaned to maintain their performance.

Financial Support Available

Zero VAT rate: The reduced rate or “zero rate” may apply when solar panels are supplied and installed as part of a supply and install contract. For more information, visit the website of Revenue.ie.

 

Domestic Solar PV Grant: SEAI currently offers homeowners a grant towards the cost of installation of a domestic solar PV system.

  • €900 per kWp up to 2kWp example: €1800 for 2kWp solar panels
  • €300 for every additional kWp up to 4kWp example: €2100 for 3kWp solar panels
  • Total Solar PV grant capped at €2400 example: €2400 for 4kWp solar panels

Who can apply?

All homeowners, including landlords, whose homes were built and occupied before 2021 can apply. This is defined as the date your electricity meter was installed. This is different to other grant measures where the home must be built before 2011.

Full information and how to apply for this grant can be found on the SEAI website.

Solar Choices installs high-quality products from world leading manufacturers. A Solar PV system has the following components:

PV Panels: Longi Mono 365W

A solar PV array consists of a number of solar PV panels that are electrically connected. The solar PV array generates DC electricity from sunlight. Longi are Monocrystalline black framed modules using Half-cut Technology. Ideal for slate or dark tiled roofs

Inverter: Solis

A solar power inverter is a key part of any solar photovoltaic system, as it converts electricity from DC to AC. This is necessary since you need AC power for the energy supply of your home appliances.

The Solis range has exceptionally low input voltage making them suitable for very small systems of just two modules. All products offered are certified to EN50438 for the Irish market.

Diverter: Eddi

Diverters or charge controllers regulate the DC from the solar panels to make sure that the batteries don’t overcharge. A charge controller can measure whether the batteries are fully charged, and can stop the current from flowing in order to prevent the batteries from permanent damage.

Eddi is an eco smart energy management system, it diverts surplus power from solar PV or wind generation to a designated heating appliance (or two sequentially). This excess energy will go directly to a designated appliance such as an immersion heater. Eddi allows you to stop exporting energy back to the grid & saves you money on your energy bill.

Battery: Pylontech

An optional battery makes sure that none of your unused energy goes to waste, as it stores the energy that is being produced by the PV array and is not consumed immediately. It can then, for example, supply your home with electricity during the night or during very cloudy weather when there is insufficient sunlight.

The Pylontech is a modern lithium battery, excellent at storing and releasing surplus energy. Creating a huge impact on the savings you can make with your solar photovoltaic system.

Solar Choices can also install your
Electric Vehicle Charger
at the same time as installing your PV Solar System.
