Grants for domestic solar panels this summer says Naughten

Speaking at the Renewable Energy Summit in Dublin today, Minister Naughton expressed his devotion to instigate government grants for domestic solar panels.

“It is my intention to open a grant aided pilot scheme this summer for solar PV microgeneration, targeted initially at self-consumption and for domestic properties,” he said.

“This will be the first phase in a multi-phased implementation of supports for microgeneration in Ireland.”

Welcoming the announcement, Pat Smith, joint chairman of the Micro-Renewable Energy Federation, encouraged the minister to extend the pilot scheme to business and farmers.
