SEAI Grants

SEAI has announced a grant scheme for retrofitting solar PV to houses built before 2011. The grant is substantial at €700 per kw of solar panel installed and an extra €1000 for battery storage. This is a game changing grant for Irish households as it makes solar pv a realistic option for normal houses in Ireland. If you would like to generate your own clean electricity please get in touch.


  1. 1. Houses built before 2011 are eligible 
  3. 2. €700 per kw grant funding available
  5. 3. 4 kW solar pv systems are the maximum size that will be grant funded
  7. 4. Solar PV Systems up to 2 kW do not need battery storage to receive grant funding (€1400)
  9. 5. Solar PV Systems above 2 kW have to install battery storage to receive extra grant funding above €1400.  i.e €1400 is the maximum grant without using batteries.
  11. 6. Battery Storage is grant aided by €1000
  13. 7. Solar PV systems with over 7 panels will require planning permission.  Check with your county council what your obligations are.

Solar SEAI Grant based on average number of occupants

The measures are completed based on the average number of people that could live in a home of your size, rather than the actual number of occupants. If enough collectors are not installed this may result in non-payment of the grant. It is important that this compliance check is carried out by an SEAI registered Contractor, before work begins.



Solar PV systems bigger than 2 kW will need to install a battery to qualify for the grant funds. The bettery element of the install is worth an extra €1000 on top of the €700 per kW for the solar panels. People with existing PV systems can also apply for the battery grant if they want to add storage. The grant covers a lot of the hardware costs in many cases so is well worth looking at.

The grant has been widely welcomed by all those involved in the solar panel industry.  A long time coming it is a first step towards regaining the trust and support of local communities interested in installing solar panels.

It is estimated that 500,000 homes, 50,000 businesses, and 75,000 farms have suitable roof space to deliver up to 250mW electricity per year from roof-top Solar panel installations.  The solar panels grant will help in moving towards this but a feed in tarrif is the ultimate requirement for a healthy economic environment for solar panel promotion.


Solar PV panels that produce electricity is a proven technology. The output is predictable and cost levels are more than attractive when compared to fossil fuels.  Current payback for solar panel installations can be as low as seven and eight years in Ireland.  This can be further reduced to five years with sufficient Government support.

Most importantly the solar panels grant will empower communities by supporting households and businesses to immediately install solar panels and thereby contribute to Ireland’s climate change targets.  This will also reduce our exposure to expensive fines for missing our climate change targets.


There is a substantial grant available from the SEAI for installing solar panels for heating water.  The grants for solar panels are worth €1200 off the solar panels price - this is a fantastic deal and can bring the cost of installing solar panels down to the €3000 region.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Ciara Allen
Quality and price were amazing and the finished results!! well Im delighted with. Would most definitly recommed. Very responsive to any enquiries i had and job was done in a timely manner.

Sean Donoghue
Denis provided very good support from the start to the finish of our project to have all windows/doors upgraded.
The doors, window selections provided by EcoSolution are wide and Denis is very knowledgeable and patient to explain through the appropriate option to install for your project. For example, double versus triple glazing, where Denis based on his experience outlined that double is best for our house considering the level of surrounding noise is quite low. The installation team was fantastic, very clean workers who cared about the project, making sure to explain each step, and providing advice on future maintenance.
Also, the installation team liked to have a laugh which I find is important as it shows how well they work both together and with the customer. I would highly recommend using EcoSolution Windows & Doors.
Elizabeth Wilson
I can highly recommend Denis and his team. They were very professional and I could not fault their service. I was kept informed every step of the way.
The work was done throughout Covid 19 and they adhered to all the Covid 19 regulations. I got new windows all round, a hall door, a back door and french windows installed, their service was outstanding. Their attention to detail was brilliant. Their price was unbeatable, excellent quality, fitted quickly and without any hassle. Denis was extremely efficient to deal with. I would certainly use their services again.

Well 15 windows 4 man team in 1 day. 8.30am to 4.30pm. Beat that if you can. 4 gentlemen fitters arrived at our door, they worked nonstop, did an amazing job. Kept them fed with drinks all day and they were like a well oiled machine. They tidied up well after them. Our house looks amazing. Loved the salesman’s ideas as well. I can see now why he sold them to us. Great job.
