This case study was carried out on an installation by NRG Panel and is great example of solar panels Tipperary
Thomas got in contact with us back in August 2020 as he wanted to see are solar panels worth it for him, he had been looking in to them for a while and had done his research. His main interest was to reduce this electricity bills as all of his showers are electric and his bills were coming in at €150 every two months.
Thomas is living in a two storey semi-detached house. His roof is slated and is south facing which is the ideal orientation for solar panels. Prior to the installation Thomas’s BER rating was a D1 and moved to a C3 with solar, With a BER of C3 Thomas qualified for the SEAI grant incentive of €1,800 for panel only installation, he said that the process was simple and painless. It is worth noting that this grant can increase up to €3,000 if you add a battery system to your installation.
UPDATE 2022: Exciting news as the Solar PV grants have just changed for 2022. They have scrapped the BER requirement and the 2011 year of construction requirement.
New solar grant eligibility: Home must be built and occupied prior to 2021 & and you must also never have been in receipt of a PV grant at this address in the past.
New solar grant amount: €900 per kWp up to 2kWp and €300 for every additional kWp up to 4kWp. – No grant aid available for battery
After a consultation, our energy expert designed a bespoke system for Thomas. They decided that the best option based on the monthly electricity usage, lifestyle, roof space and orientation would be an 8 panel system on the back south facing roof with the inverter installed in attic. Thomas was not interested in heating his water as all his showers are electric so we did not add on an Eddi diverter for this install.
The system was installed in October 2020 in about 4 hours. Our aim was to save this customer up to 50% on his all the while reducing his carbon footprint and increase his BER rating.
We caught up with Thomas since the solar panel install and he said that he was extremely happy with the panels he said that they had cut his bills in half and that he was even thinking of getting two more panels.
Thomas was so happy that he has since referred his friend, who in turn got installed by ourselves, this means that Thomas is already reaping the €250 reward for our referral scheme, he has another referral just waiting to get over line, if that goes ahead he will have cut his costs by €500.
