Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Solar Panels

There is an average of 1503 hours of sunlight per year in Dublin so it is a great place to consider solar panel installation for your home or your business. Because of the fact that solar energy is the most plentiful and cleanest green power source – we highly recommend that you consider this as an energy source. Our local experts are able to advise you more on how you can benefit from our solar panel systems and solar energy systems. One of the greatest benefits of commercial PV systems is the substantial cost savings. If you operate industrial PV panels, you can sell the excess energy to the utility companies for incurring profits.
You will need to ensure that your roof sees sunlight in order to be able to fully use solar panels. Your solar panels can’t face north or be in the shade but can be located at other points of the roof. The solar panel system will weigh from 120kg to 280kg so your roof needs to be able to handle these weights. We will advise you on the best positioning of your solar panel systems and whether it’s possible to install solar panels on the roof of your house.

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.
