Irish Government Approves Grants for Businesses to Install Solar PV Panels

It has been reported that the government is in the process of approving grants for businesses installing Solar PV Panels, powering a more sustainable future for all.

The scheme, proposed by Minister Eamon Ryan and Minister Simon Coveney, will offer tiered grants ranging from €2,700 to €162,500 for the installation of panels and associated infrastructure on non-residential commercial and public sector buildings.

The new range of installation sizes – greater than 6 kWp up to 1,000 kWp (1 MW) capacity – will cover a variety of non-domestic businesses, from small local shops up to large manufacturing facilities. It will also be available for public buildings, sports clubs and community organizations.

The amended scheme will operate on an introductory basis to the end of 2023 following which it will be assessed and subject to the normal budgetary process into 2024 or 2025. SEAI will implement the necessary changes and will open for applications under the amended scheme guidelines in mid-July.

Minister for the Environment Eamon Ryan said: “This move by Government shows Ireland’s continued commitment to supporting all of our citizens, businesses and community organisations, to be part of our journey to a cleaner, cheaper and renewable energy future.”

This grant scheme proposal will provide a huge boost for the renewable energy sector which will allow more businesses the opportunity to invest in solar power powering a more sustainable future. The availability of this grant is a very welcomed addition that will reduce the financial cost on businesses and alongside the recent announcement of 0.0% Vat rate on residential installations it shows the governments commitment to supporting our goal of clean renewable energy.

We look forward to continue or work with businesses of all sizes, helping them to achieve a reduction in the cost of their energy bills with the installation of Solar PV panels alongside reducing carbon emissions and continuing to build towards a more sustainable future for All.
