Solar PV panels use the sun's energy to convert daylight into renewable energy. The electricity is then consumed within the home, reducing your need to buy energy from a supplier. When a Solar PV system produces more energy than a home needs, the extra energy can go to your immersion heater. Solar PV is not to be confused with
Solar Thermal - while Solar Thermal heats water only, Solar PV gives you free electricity and hot water.
Most customers install solar PV on their roof, however they can be installed anywhere on your property where there is sufficient open space and good sun exposure.
Electric Ireland can provide customers with solar PV through our preferred partners, NRG Panel. Our specialist teams will help you apply for solar PV grants from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).
