Grant Information for Solar Electricity

Grant Information for Solar Electricity


Generate your own clean energy! SEAI grants for Solar PV panels to generate electricity for homeowners.

The Benefits
Cheaper electricity bills
On average, a solar PV system can save between €200-€300 per year on your domestic electricity bill. This will make a big difference to your household running costs, allowing you to save for what really matters..

Improve your BER
By investing in solar PV, you will also be making an impact on the BER of your home. When it comes to selling your home, a higher BER will add value and help you achieve a higher sale price.

Reduce Your Emissions
Generating your own renewable electricity also has benefits for our environment. The energy you consume will be clean energy which cuts down on your greenhouse gas emissions.

Grant for Solar PV
We are delighted to offer homeowners a grant to support the installation of Solar PV panels and battery energy storage systems. This will reduce the electricity you currently purchase from your supplier and save you money.

Support is available to all owners of dwellings built and occupied before 2011 and where SEAI has not previously provided support for the solar PV system at that address.

The home’s energy performance following the installation of solar panels must be BER C or better.

Payback Estimate
The payback period depends on:

  • Upfront costs
  • Maintenance of the panels
  • Amount of sun falling on the panels (South facing panels will produce the most electricity)
  • The price paid for the electricity
  • The typical cost is €1,700 – €2,500 per kWp
