Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Solar Panels

Solar PV panels are placed on your roof or ground.

UV from the sunlight forms a reaction in the solar panels, which creates electricity.

Electricity is charged from Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) via an inverter.

The electricity is connected to your house through the main fuse board.

This electrical energy is used to power the various electrical demands of your house.

Your energy rating improves because you are utilising renewable energy to power your house.

Your PV solar system saves money and saves the planet.
The kind of rooftop you have will be a crucial factor in determining if solar panels are suited for your house since some roof types, especially older ones, are not compatible with photovoltaic systems. As part of the evaluation process, your installer will advise you on whether or not your roof is appropriate. If your roof is unsuitable, you will be offered alternatives on how to change it and make solar systems in Ireland and Northern Ireland work.

Generally speaking, a variety of criteria determine whether your roof is appropriate for solar photovoltaic panels and, if so, which type would be ideal for you. For instance, you need to determine where on your roof the panel will be fitted and which way your residential property faces. This is important as homes facing south receive more sunlight than those facing north.
When you install solar panels in Ireland or in Northern Ireland on your residential property, you won’t be cut off from the Irish grid. You will just need to rely on it less frequently. The beauty of switching to solar electricity is that you are producing your own energy. You will always have access to a clean, renewable energy supply, regardless of what is happening elsewhere in the nation.

Additionally, it implies that your energy expenses are mostly constant. Therefore, the majority of your energy will always be free, regardless of how the price of oil or gas changes in response to the market. Sunshine is completely free and when energy costs rise over time due to inflation, your solar panels for home will actually save you more money.

We had been considering the installation of Solar PV for quite a while. I visited many commercial premises that had installed solar panels to research the process, before deciding on Alternative Energy as our provider. Jerome, Ronan and their team did a top class job of designing, installing and commissioning our system, with minimum disruption to the every day running of our factory. All the required paperwork and forms were completed for our ESB Network connection and our SEAI grant application. Our phone app allows us to monitor our usage and get live information of solar production. I am now looking at installing a second system on another premises and plan on using Jerome and Ronan once again. Their standard of workmanship is exemplary and I would have no hesitation in recommending Alternative Energy as a solar provider. Mark Birnie Director Shackletons Milling.

The guys were recommended to me by a friend. Price was good and they were lovely to deal with. I'm not usually one for leaving reviews but they went the extra mile so I thought it was only fair. We actually had a faulty inverter out of the box, the guys took up the case with the manufacturer and got us a replacement fitted within a week, so fair play.

Excellent service and excellent value for money. They came on the planned date and installed, tested and commissioned the solar PV panel system over two days. Both the roofing team and the electricians carried out their work in a professional manner. They answered and explained any questions I asked, they discussed with me beforehand what they would do, they explained how the system operates and what apps I needed to download and they tidied up fully when they were finished. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alternative Energy to anyone based on their excellent service and professionalism.
