The service I have received is by far the best of any service provider in the country.

Read what our customer Billy Cusack has to say about our solar panels Clare solution.

This insightful case study was conducted by  NRG Panel, showcasing a real solar panel installation. Our customer generously permitted us to feature their home as an example, inspiring others to embrace solar PV. NRG Panel, Ireland’s foremost solar panel installers, excel in Solar PV panels and air to water heat pumps, with a track record of over 8000 installations nationwide. With more than two decades of experience, SEAI registered along with triple ISO accreditations, choosing us is the right decision.

Billy reached out to us with the goal of reducing his electricity expenses. Residing in a two-story terrace house in Co. Clare, he sought an effective solution for his high bimonthly bills. he had this question in his mind:  are solar panels worth it ?

His home featured an east/west-facing tiled roof, dispelling the misconception that solar panels must exclusively face south. Pre-installation, his BER rating stood at C1, but with the addition of solar panels, it improved significantly.

This upgrade made Billy eligible for the SEAI grant, providing financial incentives for panel-only installations, with the option to extend it by including a battery system. However, we recommend batteries primarily for larger systems or homes with prolonged absences, as smaller setups may not generate sufficient excess energy to justify a battery.

After a consultation, our energy expert designed a bespoke system for Billy. They decided that the best option based on the monthly electricity usage, lifestyle, roof space and orientation would be a 10 panel system split on the east/west facing roof with the inverter installed in attic. Billy was using oil to heat is water and wanted to get away from that as much as he could so we added an Eddi diverter to help reduce his dependence on oil. An Eddi diverter is a device that diverts any surplus energy produced by the solar panels to heat your water tank after your consumption needs are satisfied.

The system was installed in March 2020 in just one day. Our aim was to save this customer on money on his electricity his bills and provide him with some free hot water throughout the year, all the while reducing his carbon footprint and increasing his BER rating.

Thanks to our handy solar PV app we can see that Billy pays 0.17c per unit for his electricity – as of 11th August 2021 he has already produced 1,566kwh of free energy in 2021 equating to approximately €266 in savings so far this year. With a system sized at 3.1kWp split over an east west roof we would expect annual production of approx. 2,400kWh over the year meaning that Billy will hopefully see annual savings of approx. €408 by the end of 2021.
