Solar Panel Installation Letterkenny

Alternative Energy originated as Electrical Contractors in 2004. J&R Electrical (NI) Ltd specialises in Domestic, Commercial and Agriculture installations. Solar PV panel systems are becoming more and more popular as alternative and renewable energy solutions for businesses and agricultural business/premises owners. We have worked closely with a wide array of businesses and agricultural clients to install solar energy solutions to help them save money on their energy bills, decrease their environmental impact and get away from reliance on the monopoly of energy prices. 

Energy prices are unstable in terms of aggressive pricing, so it’s a great consideration to move towards solar energy solutions. There are also grants available to offset the initial cost of having to invest in the installation of your solar panel system, so there’s no time like the present to install solar panels in Letterkenny.

What Are the Main Benefits of Installing a Solar PV System

Now is a fantastic time to invest in solar panels for your business or agricultural premises. Renewable energy is highly important for a greener future and is one of the core ways in which we can actively reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact. Solar energy is one of if not the greenest source of energy available. 

    • You are able to invest in renewable energy for your business or agricultural premises. It’s unlikely that you will be able to power your entire business operation from just solar power but this will depend on the size of your premises, the number of solar panels that you are able to install and the amount of power that you need per year. You are also able to be less dependent on energy companies who hold a monopoly on the market and can increase prices to arguably extortionate rates.

    • There are grants available to offset the initial investment of having to invest in the installation of your solar panel system. We can advise you on the process of applying for this grant when speaking to us about your requirements.

    • Solar panels are incredibly cost-effective and have become more affordable than ever.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Letterkenny enjoys on average 1352 hours of sunshine per year, making it a great location for solar panel installation for your business or agricultural premises. We are able to advise you on the best installation process and systems for your premises.

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.

Solar panels are best placed on south-facing roofs but also work well on east or west-facing roofs. For flat roofs, installation is possible but would require assessment to ensure that there are no obstacles that prevent effective installation. We have worked with many businesses and agricultural businesses to provide solar panel solutions so we will use our expertise to assess your premises in terms of eligibility for solar panel installation. Solar panels can also be installed on the ground so there are solutions which can be used to ensure that you are able to install your solar panel system and enjoy the benefits of solar energy.

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.
