Investing in Solar offers huge savings for your house
Solar energy is harnessed from the sun’s rays through solar panels. These panels, typically installed on rooftops, capture sunlight and convert it into electricity using photovoltaic cells.
Yes, solar panels are effective in Ireland. While the country experiences varying weather conditions, solar panels can generate electricity even on cloudy days. They are designed to capture diffuse sunlight, making them a viable option.
Photovoltaic cells within solar panels contain semiconductor materials that generate an electric current when exposed to sunlight. This direct current (DC) is then converted into usable alternating current (AC) electricity for homes.
A typical solar panel system includes solar panels, inverters, mounting structures, and a monitoring system. Inverters convert DC electricity from the panels into AC electricity for household use.
Solar panel efficiency is influenced by factors like sunlight intensity, duration of sunlight, tilt and orientation of panels, shading, and the cleanliness of the panels.
Yes, through the Microgeneration Support Scheme, you can sell excess electricity back to the grid. This scheme encourages homeowners to generate renewable energy and contribute to the national grid.
Solar panels typically have a lifespan of 25-30 years. Most manufacturers offer warranties that guarantee a certain level of performance over a specified period.
The space required depends on your energy needs and the efficiency of the panels. On average, a residential solar panel system in Ireland might need 20-30 square meters of roof space but some houses can have less space and be able to install a solar panel system
In most cases, planning permission is not required for solar panels on domestic properties. However, it’s advisable to check with your local authority for specific regulations.
Yes, solar panels can generate electricity during winter. While there may be reduced sunlight hours, modern panels are designed to capture and convert sunlight even in low-light conditions.
Yes, the government offers incentives and grants to promote solar energy adoption. The SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland) provides information on available supports for solar installations.
Most solar panel systems come with monitoring tools that allow you to track energy production. These tools provide real-time data on electricity generation and system performance.
