The SEAI launched the pilot scheme in August 2018. Since the launch over 400,000 people have availed of the grants.
The aim of the grant is to assist homeowners in moving towards clean energy. As a result, homeowners can reduce their energy bills, save money and reduce their carbon footprint.
There is up to €3800 available for Solar PV installations and up to €3500 for heat pump installations. To be eligible, your home must be built and occupied prior to 2011. Additionally, your electricity will also need to be turned prior to 2011.
There was some confusion over the grants when in August 2019 the SEAI ceased the Deep Retrofit Grants. The Deep Retrofit Grant allowed homeowners to carry out multiple energy upgrades all at once to achieve a BER of A-rating.
Multiple media outlets carried headline ‘SEAI Ceases Grant’ leading many to believe that all Home Energy Grants had closed. However, this is not the case. Grants for Solar PV and Heat Pumps remain open and running, the SEAI confirmed.
Nevertheless, the Home Energy Grants are still a pilot programme and the SEAI has given no indication as to how long they will remain open, making now the best time to enquire about your system!
