Commercial Solar PV: The smart investment for business

Why choose solar in Ireland? 

Enhance your company’s green credentials and reduce your energy costs with Solar PV. Solar energy is very predictable and its yearly contribution to your electrical needs and return on investment can be calculated with a high degree of accuracy. With commercial solar panel installations, many Irish businesses see electricity savings of 40-50%.

Many commercial businesses have large roof spaces that are essentially desert. Adding solar panels to businesses allows you to utilise this otherwise unproductive space.  With a grid connection, which we look after, excess generation can be sent back to the grid. This is particularly beneficial for businesses with low weekend electricity demand. 

Does Solar make sense?

Businesses can expect a payback period of 3.5-5 years factoring in VAT refund, SEAI grant, and depending on prevailing kWh rate. The crucial thing is to invest in a quality technology  that will stand the test of time. Our Solarwatt panels come with European 30-year product and 30-year performance guarantees which help ensure businesses see a high return on investment.

Irish environment
Solar PV works when exposed to both direct and indirect sunlight. It’s not reliant on heat from the sun and, in fact, its performance can actually decrease if it gets too hot (this isn’t often a problem in Ireland). Solar PV is predictable and effective in the Irish environment and the Irish rain means that the panels are largely self-cleaning.
