After a consultation, our energy expert designed a bespoke system for Cyril. They decided that the best option based on the monthly electricity usage, lifestyle, roof space and orientation would be a 15 panel system on the back south east facing roof with the inverter installed in attic. Cyril was interested in heating his water, so we added on an Eddi diverter and this was installed in the hot-press and he also owns two EV’s, so we installed a Zappi car charger at the front door.
The system was installed in November 2020 in about 4 hours. Our aim was to save this customer up to 50% on his bills and to also provide him with some hot water, EV charging all the while reducing his carbon footprint and increase his BER rating.
We caught up with Cyril since the solar panel install and here is what he had to say – I have already generated 1,420 kWh and saved 1.4 tons of CO2 and saved €226 on my electric bill in just 5 months and have effectively an emission free house (electric, hot water and motoring).
With the new ESB Feed in tariff I can start to help power some neighbour’s homes as well saving more carbon emissions and get paid for the surplus reducing the payback time which I estimate at 4.5 years. I estimate savings on my electric bill to be about 70% or €70 a month for 8 months or the year, €500 on motoring vs diesel which was €1,200 plus a year.
Cyril’s only wish was that he had done this a couple of years ago – we all need to tread more lightly on the planet and reduce our carbon footprint actively.
Solar PV is worth the investment and NRG Panel are the leading installer but don’t take our word – Check out this wicked review by Cyril after the install.
‘Highly recommend NRG panel for Solar Panel systems, after a lot of research and many quotes I selected NRG as best value and expertise on the market. They did up detailed plans with solar gain and suggested the panel setup to charge two EV’s from a Zappi, an Eddi for hot water and had it all done in half a day. Lovely people to deal with from Conal to Naomi very knowledgeable and helpful.’’
UPDATE: Cyril updated us on his savings with the increase in the cost of living he has redone the maths taking into account higher diesel prices, ROI was 30 months but he got the entire €7,200 cost back in mostly diesel savings on two EVs and his last electric bill for 2 months was €34 ! Last years electric bill was €700 and €300 of that was standing charges etc
He also estimated that he will get €193 back on the FIT as he has a day night meter…. Amazing !!!
