Here at Vision Solar we strive to be as transparent and informative as possible. Here in our FAQ you will find a list of common questions in regards to our services and Solar Panels. If you have a question that is not present, please get in touch with us.
Installing solar panels in Ireland offers several benefits. First and foremost, it allows you to generate clean and renewable energy, reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a greener environment. Solar panels can significantly lower your electricity bills by generating electricity from the sun’s free and abundant energy. Additionally, installing solar panels can potentially increase the value of your property and provide a reliable source of energy even during power outages.
The amount of energy your solar panels can produce depends on several factors, including the size and efficiency of the panels, the orientation and tilt angle of the installation, and the local weather conditions. On average, a well-designed solar panel system in Ireland can generate around 900-1,200 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per installed kilowatt peak (kWp) annually.
Solar panel systems are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Most solar panels come with a warranty of 25 years, which is a good indication of their lifespan. However, solar panels can continue to produce electricity beyond their warranty period, with some systems lasting 30 years or more.
Solar panels generally require minimal maintenance. Regular cleaning of the panels to remove dust, dirt, and debris is recommended to optimize their performance. Additionally, it’s important to ensure that the panels remain unobstructed by trees or other objects that could cast shadows.
The cost of installing a solar panel system in Ireland can vary depending on various factors such as the size of the system, the quality of panels and components used, and the complexity of the installation. We recommend that you go over to our Quotes section and we can get you started.
Several factors determine the suitability of a property for solar panel installation, including the orientation and tilt of the roof, shading from nearby structures or trees, and the available roof space. Contact Vision Solar today and we can asses your property and provide a comprehensive evaluation to determine its suitability for solar panels.
The installation time for a solar panel system can vary depending on the size and complexity of the installation. In general, a typical residential installation can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. We will be transparent with you and let you know how long the process will take for your business/home.
The SEAI is offering a solar grant of up to €2,400 towards the installation of solar PV panels. The grant is available to all owners of dwellings built and occupied before December 2020 and where the SEAI have not previously provided support for solar PV system at that address.
Each solar panel that is installed can save up to 100kg of CO2 per year. This reduces your emissions from using electricity and makes a big difference to the environment.
Yes. Studies have shown that solar panels increased your property value more than any other single upgrade, such as a new kitchen.
Your Solar PV will generate power even on days when the sun is not shining. Solar PV panels work of solar radiance so even on cloudy days they will still produce electricity. On days where we have clear blue skies, PV panels will produce more but when sizing a system we take cloudy days and your orientation into account to ensure maximum efficiency.
