Rooftop Solar for Farms

Electric Ireland offer various size Solar PV arrays starting with a 20 panel 6kWp array.

Larger arrays are available and will be designed and sized to best suit your farms requirements.

Electric Ireland can also include a diverter to heat your water and we can also install a battery made by Sonnen of Germany.

What is a Solar Battery Storage system?

Store your Solar generated electricity for later use in your home. The battery system can be programmed to charge on cheaper night rate electricity resulting in further savings and lower bills.



Monitor your power usage

To see how much power your home is using a good quality broadband connection is necessary. Once installed the homeowner can review both the live and cumulative energy usage in the home on the free energy app from their smartphone.

9. What is Solar PV?

Solar PV, also called Photovoltaic, uses 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.
