Solar Panel Installations

Seriously sunny savings. Installing solar panels in your home not only saves you thousands on your annual utility bills - it also dramatically increases the value of your home.

Why Solar Energy?

The benefits of using solar energy for hot water heating are immense.  Solar Energy is free and the annual solar energy that reaches the earth’s surface is 10,000 times greater than the annual global energy demand.  Solar hot water heating systems can deliver up to 70% of the hot water requirements for an average household in Ireland.

By using solar energy to heat hot water, you will be helping to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, improve energy efficiency, and increase the value of your home.  An average domestic solar hot water system can save in excess of one tonne of carbon dioxide per year. Investing in solar energy is an investment in the future of the environment and adds considerable resale value to your property.

Does Ireland receive enough sun for solar panels to be effective?

Yes!  While it’s true that sunnier climates are able to generate higher levels of solar power, properly installed solar panels in an Irish home generate 100% of the water heating between April and September.  Solar Power is especially effective in the south of Ireland where solar irradation is highest.
