The Benefits of Solar Panel Installation for Your Property

There are many benefits to installing solar panels on your property. Environmental impact is becoming a more and more pressing issue for businesses and homeowners alike. Energy use is one of the main ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint and solar panels allow you to enjoy renewable energy. The benefits of solar panel installation are as follows:

    • Depending on the size of your property – you may be able to power your entire building using solar panels. If you are unable to power your entire property – you are still able to enjoy renewable energy and lessen your dependence on the monopoly of major energy companies.

    • Solar panel installation is becoming more affordable than ever and there are grants available that allow you to offset the initial cost of having to install your solar panel system.

    • Solar energy is one of the greenest sources of energy on the planet. The only byproduct of the conversion of sunlight to electricity is heat.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Solar Panels

On average, Sligo receives 1144 hours of sunlight – making it an ideal location for solar panel installation. We have worked with clients in Sligo and the surrounding areas for many years and we are able to discuss your requirements and provide you with a free quote for solar panel installation.

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 ideally suited for south-facing roofs. You are also able to install solar panels on east or west-facing roofs effectively. For flat roofs, we can advise you on the suitability of your roof. Whether or not you can install solar panels on flat roofs depends on the obstacles that are present on the roof. We will assess your eligibility for solar panel installation for you. There are other solutions that may also be available such as the installation of solar panels at ground level.

Solar panel installation is ideally suited for homes and properties. Some homes are able to be completely run on solar panels depending on the size of the property and energy requirements per year. South-facing roofs are ideally suited for solar panel installation but east and west-facing roofs can be effective.

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.
