predicted growth OF
School installations

Anticipating the growth in solar installations for schools in Ireland involves a strategic projection based on various factors. Our approach considers a phased increase over the next four months.

We initiate with a modest installation figure for January, foreseeing a 20% expansion each subsequent month. This calculated growth aligns with expectations of heightened interest, potential government incentives, and an increasing commitment to sustainability within the educational sector.

The projections aim to balance a steady rise in installations amongst all installers, with April seeing the completion of the targeted 4000 installations.
