Solar PV Panels

Solar Panels Specifically designed for our Irish Climate

We install Solar Panels specifically designed for the climate here in Ireland.

Reduce your Carbon Footprint with Solar PV

PV Solar is not a new technology and it does not need direct sunlight to work, and even in overcast conditions you can generate your own free electricity. Fitted as standard in most new builds, PV Solar has very quickly become the number 1 choice for Irish homeowners looking for new ways to reduce their carbon footprint. PV Solar can be easily retrofitted and is the future of how we power our homes here in Ireland.

How these Solar Panels work

 Solar PV panels are electricity generating solar collectors that capture the Sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. The PV cells convert energy from the Sun in to usable electricity that we can use to power our homes. There are many ways to utilise this energy produced from your PV Solar collectors and systems are available with or without battery storage. You can also fully monitor the performance of your system and your savings from anywhere in the World through our Smart App.

How Solar PV Works

The PV panels mounted on your roof absorb the Suns energy through the photovoltaic cells built in to the collectors. Electrons are extracted from these cells through a semiconductor material and an electrical current is generated. This electrical current is then sent to an inverter which converts it from DC (Direct Current) to AC (Alternating Current) which is usable electricity we can utilise to power our homes. From there, the power you are producing can be sent directly to the fuse board for consumption or to a battery for storage which can be used at a later stage. Any unused electricity you produce can fed back in to the national grid helping Ireland reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

FAQ

Frequently Asked

Requirements for installing these Solar Panels:

Our Solar Panels are designed to integrate with your existing Home Heating system. Typically, all that is required is around five square metres of roof space which faces east to west through south and receives direct sunlight for the main part of the day. Also the solar panels don’t have to be mounted on a roof: they can be fixed to a frame on a flat roof or hanging from a wall. No planning permission is required

Is the installation of the Solar Panels a disruptive process?
No, not at all. Our team can have a system up and functional in just a few hours. The majority of the work is done on the outside of the home so no redecorating is needed. Our installers are professionals, with many years of experience, so they know exactly what they’re doing.
