Despite the Ireland’s reputation we actually get more than enough solar energy to make solar panels for your home a good investment, even on cloudy days.
In fact, the Ireland receives a similar amount of solar energy as some of the warmer European countries, and the same as Germany, one of the world leading generators of solar power.
A 12-panel solar system could generate enough energy in a year to power a Tesla EV for 17,660 miles of emission-free driving or enable an A++ dishwasher to complete 4,465 loads in that time6.
At NuSolas Energy we only install TOP TIER 1 Solar Panels. Our Solar Panels have the highest efficiency of up to 19.5% and comes with 25 years linear power output warranty.
The size of your solar energy system will depend on how much electricity you use on a monthly basis, as well as the weather conditions where you live. Contact NuSolas and our Solar Pv Expert will send you the different sizes options suitable for you with price within 24 hours.
In general, solar panels are very durable and capable of withstanding snow, wind, and hail. The various components of your solar power system will need to be replaced at different times, but your system should continue to generate electricity for 25 to 35 years.
There are a few criteria that everyone should use when choosing a solar installer. Confirm that they are certified, licensed and insured, have relevant experience, and can provide references. All NuSolas Solar PV installers are pre-screened to ensure that they meet the high-quality standards. Meet with your solar installer in person before you sign an agreement to ensure that you are comfortable working with them.
Larger solar PV systems in a business or industrial setting will typically require planning permission. Solar PV systems installed in such a setting under 50 sq. m (and representing less than 50% of the total roof area) are exempt from planning. Visit the page on conditional planning exemptions for the full details.
While we are supportive of all forms of renewable energy, small-scale wind power is generally not cost-effective in Ireland nor easy to site. In other words, you’ll get more electricity, dollar for dollar, by investing in solar instead of wind. Read on for more about: wind energy vs. solar energy.
