Businesses installing solar panels can avail of grants that range from €2,700 to €162,600.

This support is available through the Non-Domestic Microgen Grant (NDMG) scheme.

The specific grant amount a business can avail of is based on the standard output of the system.

The maximum grant value of €162,600 is reached with a 1000kWp system.

Smaller commercial solar PV systems have lower likely grant values.

Start with SEAI registered non-domestic solar installers.

The complete list of SEAI registered solar installers, including NRG Panel, can be found here. Be sure to select “non domestic” to see commercial solar installers.

To avail of solar PV grants, installations must be completed by an SEAI registered installer.

SEAI registration helps ensure best practice, tax and insurance compliance. However, SEAI does not endorse any specific solar installer so more due diligence is required.

Check for ISO accreditation

ISO accreditation indicates a solar installer’s commitment to maintaining high standards in operations and management practices. 

This helps ensure you choose a solar PV partner that’s reliable, has consistent quality, and adheres to best practices. In turn, this reduces the risk of a subpar installation and after-sales support.

Here at NRG Panel, we are proud of our triple ISO accreditation.

Find references and reviews

Reviews provide insights into a solar installer’s service quality, which helps ensure you choose the best solar PV partner for your business.

Negative reviews, or even hidden reviews, can indicate potential issues or concerns.

Here at NRG Panel, we’re proud of our exceptionally high review rating. Our reviews on Google can be found here.

Ask about warranties and partners

Additionally, to find the best commercial solar installer ask about:

  • Their warranties (product and workmanship warranties, e.g. NRG Panel offers 25-year product warranties and a 5-year workmanship warranty).
  • Their business partners (e.g. NRG Panel are Electric Ireland’s official partner).

This, combined with the above, will help you identify the best commercial solar installer for your business.

The best solar panels for businesses are high-efficiency, Tier1, N-Type, bifacial, monocrystalline panels with a class A fire rating, and long-term product and performance warranty. 

The solar panels must also be suitable for the Irish climate, so wind tolerance, operational temperature, etc., must be considered.

Also, in addition to solar panels, the complete solar system must be considered.

NRG Panel install the best solar panels and complete solar solution, as standard.

There are planning permission exemptions for solar panels on rooftops of businesses, industrial buildings, farms, community and educational buildings, along with several other buildings.

More details on planning permission exemptions can be found on gov.ie, here.
