Renewable Energy From Solar Panels for Your Business or Agricultural Premises

There are many benefits for your business or agricultural premises when choosing to install solar panels and power your property with solar power. We have worked with clients across many sectors that own different properties. We can work with you to help you harness all of the benefits of solar and renewable energy. The benefits of installing solar panels in Galway are as follows:

    • Solar energy is one of if not the greenest renewable energy sources. The only bi-product of electricity being generated from the reaction is heat. Solar energy also allows you to save money on energy bills and lets you move away from relying on national energy providers that control pricing.

    • There are grants available to help offset the cost of the installation of your solar panels. This combined with the ever-increasing affordability of solar panels makes solar panel installation a great choice.

    • You are able to power your premises with solar panels. Although you may not be able to power your entire operation, you can provide a lot of electricity through your solar panel system. Whether you are able to rely on solar panels alone depends on the size of your property as well as the roof as this affects the number of solar panels you can install. The amount of electricity you use per year will also affect this.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Solar Panels

There is on average 1674.78 hours of sunlight in Galway per year, making it an ideal place for your business or agricultural premises to install solar panels. Solar panels are ideally suited to be installed on south-facing roofs but can also work effectively on east or west-facing roofs.

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 can install solar panels on flat roofs but there are some considerations to be made. There needs to be no obstructions to the solar panels so we can advise you on whether your flat roof is suitable. Many premises are suitable and solar panels can also be installed on the ground in some cases. We will work with you to install your new solar panels where possible and can discuss your eligibility for solar panel installation.

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.
