Households across Ireland are taking advantage of this grant that is saving them a fortune on their energy bills.

At Solterra, we take pride in revolutionizing the way Ireland harnesses energy. Our commitment to sustainability and innovation drives us to deliver high-quality solar panel systems throughout the country paving the way for a greener future.


What is the SEAI Grant?

The SEAI grant, administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, aims to encourage the adoption of renewable energy technologies by providing financial support to eligible applicants. Specifically, the grant offers homeowners and businesses a subsidy towards the cost of purchasing and installing solar panel systems, thereby offsetting the initial investment and making sustainable energy more accessible.


Eligibility Criteria: Who Can Apply?

To qualify for the SEAI grant for solar panels, applicants must meet certain criteria set forth by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland. While specific eligibility requirements may vary, generally, applicants must:

  • Own a property in the Republic of Ireland

  • Ensure that the proposed solar panel system meets SEAI's technical specifications and standards

  • Obtain all necessary planning permissions and comply with building regulations

  • Use an SEAI registered contractor for the installation (Solterra are a registered contractor, so we'll look after the applicable details and application process)

It's essential to review the latest guidelines and eligibility criteria outlined by the SEAI to determine your qualification status accurately.


How Does the SEAI Grant Work?

Upon meeting the eligibility criteria and selecting a registered contractor, applicants can proceed with the installation of their solar panel system. The grant amount provided by the SEAI is determined based on the size and capacity of the installed system, with larger systems typically receiving higher subsidies.

Once the installation is complete, applicants are required to submit relevant documentation, including invoices and completion certificates, to the SEAI for verification. Upon successful verification, the grant amount is disbursed to the applicant, helping to offset a significant portion of the upfront costs associated with solar panel installations.


SEAI Grant and Additional Incentives

In addition to the SEAI grant, homeowners and businesses may also be eligible for other incentives and benefits related to solar energy. These may include:

Feed-in Tariffs: Earn credits or payments for excess electricity generated by your solar panel system and exported to the grid.

Tax Incentives: Explore potential tax credits or deductions available for renewable energy investments.

Energy Efficiency Upgrades: Combine solar panel installations with energy efficiency upgrades to further reduce energy consumption and maximise savings.


By leveraging these additional incentives in conjunction with the SEAI grant, you can maximise the financial benefits of transitioning to solar energy while contributing to a cleaner, more sustainable future for Ireland.


Timeline of Installation

The journey towards sustainable energy begins with a simple enquiry. Our dedicated team swiftly assesses your requirements, offering personalised recommendations and a detailed quotation. Upon agreement, we initiate the installation process, adhering to strict timelines to minimise disruption to your routine, and if you're applying for the SEAI grant, we're here to help.

Our technicians leverage cutting-edge technology to ensure optimal placement and efficiency. Once installed, our quality assurance team conducts rigorous testing to verify performance and safety standards.


Dramatic Reduction in Energy Bills: When Can You Expect Savings?

One of the most enticing benefits of transitioning to solar power is the substantial reduction in energy bills. But when can our customers expect to notice this dramatic change?

Typically, the timeline for realising significant savings varies depending on factors such as sunlight exposure, panel orientation, and energy consumption patterns. However, on average, most customers experience a noticeable decrease in their energy bills within the first three to six months of installation.


During this period, your solar panels will be converting light into electricity, offsetting a significant portion of your traditional energy consumption. As the seasons progress and sunlight intensity fluctuates, your savings will continue to accrue, offering long-term financial benefits while reducing your carbon footprint.
