How To Qualify For A Grant?

We believe we can make a difference to this world, to this very earth on which we live. We have been destroying the forests for whatever reasons for many years. It was proved that the application of solar technology for green lighting of highway rest facilities not only could have considerable energy saving capacity.

How to Apply for a Solar PV Grant?

Applying for a Solar PV (photovoltaic) grant in Ireland involves several steps to ensure you meet the eligibility criteria and complete the necessary paperwork. Here’s how to apply:

(a) Select Your PV Installation Company

Prior to applying for the subsidy, you must have a contract in place with an SEAI-approved solar installation company (like Alternative Energy). As a registered SEAI solar PV Company, we can help you qualify for the SEAI solar grant.

(b) Apply via the SEAI Website

Visit the SEAI website to apply for grants for solar panels in Ireland. After submitting your application, wait for your funding before beginning the project. Typically, a person will get an email in a matter of minutes confirming that their application for a SEAI solar panel award has been accepted. Keep in mind that grant offers are valid for eight months only.

(c) Opt for Solar Panel Installation

Next comes installing your photovoltaic panels and “commissioning” – a fancy term of saying conducting the required tests and turning on your new system. You can either pay the solar PV company or make a payment agreement.

(d) Arrange a Post Works BER

You must have a post-work Building Energy Rating (BER) performed before your grant may be processed. You need to hire a BER assessor to achieve this.

Many homeowners skip this step, which results in prolonged grant payment delays. After your solar PV system has been installed, try to arrange for your BER as soon as possible. This will quicken the grant payment process.

(e) We Will Send the Paperwork

As soon as your solar PV installation becomes operational, we will send the required documents and paperwork to the SEAI online. This is to certify that we, as a SEAI-registered solar PV installer, have installed your photovoltaic system and that it is operational.

(f) Receive Your Grant Payment

Payment applications can be processed only when all the necessary paperwork has been uploaded. Also, your BER assessor should have completed and published the post-work BER. After this, payment typically takes around 4 to 6 weeks, plus additional time if an inspection is necessary.

No, planning permission isn’t needed to receive the solar panel grant. It isn’t something the SEAI checks for when assessing grant applications.

Grants give a huge boost to residential solar energy investment. However, you can cut down your electricity costs with solar energy without the grant. In simpler words, it makes complete sense for every Irish homeowner to install solar panels, whether they qualify for the grant or not. This is because opting for solar panels provides a huge return on investment as well as a range of other benefits.
