What Our Customers Say

Mark K.Mark K. ★★★★★ James P.James P. ★★★★★ I feel quite compelled to write this review. From start to finish this company were the ultimate professionals. They fitted our solar panels in a timely manner and continuously cleaned and seemed to genuinely take pride in their work. All of the staff we encountered were so nice and we felt quite comfortable having them in our home. I would have no hesitation recommending this company. Well done guys !Myles B.Myles B. ★★★★★ I'm not usually one for reviews but given the great experience I have had with SolarShare I feel it is the least I can do.The company have been extremely professional to deal with right from our initial conversation all the way through to some post installation technical questions I had about our new solar setup.All of the team I dealt with along the way were very friendly and knowledgeable. Giorgi was my main contact from the company and he was always available to take any queries I had. Mark was able to provide 3 good options for our requirements and helped explain the pros and cons of each option. There were a couple of small delays to the installation date but this was due to supply chain issues rather than SolarShare themselves, and they were always very quick to keep me updated.After the installation was complete, the company did the majority of the work to help get the available SEAI grant. Cillian was able to assist with some technical queries I had relating to the WiFi connected meter where I can view the solar generation and consumption in real-time.Overall I would highly recommend SolarShare, they offer very competitive prices with a highly professional team. They were with me throughout the journey and overall I am very satisfied with our solar system.Response from the ownerThanks Myles, really appreciate your kind feedback.Many sunny days of generating your own electricity!The SolarShare Team Eoin Nangle R.Eoin Nangle R. ★★★★★ Had solar panels and battery installed.

Many thanks! Gerry Mc G.Gerry Mc G. ★★★★★ Had a 5.3kwp system, 5kw battery and Eddi installed by SolarShare last week. The experience from start to finish has been very professional. Early consultations ensured I had a full understanding of the system and what it could deliver, based on my location and orientation of my roof.. That wasfollowed up by a proposal giving me a few options at different price points. No hard sell.The actual installation was equally professional. My battery, inverter fitted neatly into a small attic space, with not a cable visible anywhere in the house from the cabling to the fuse box.Very happy with all aspects of the installation and would definitely recommend SolarShare.Cyril M.Cyril M. ★★★★★ I went with Solarshare because of their flexibility and willingness to accommodate my requirements. The workmanship from both the roofing team and electrician was second to none. Very happy with the entire process from start to finish including the SEAI grant application which was seamless. I now have 15 panels performing above my expectations for this time of year. Highly recommend giving them a call if you are considering PV.Response from the ownerMany thanks Cyril for the very kind feedback, it's much appreciated. Given your solar system needs to perform well over its 25 year life, designing it right is half the battle, installing it right is the other half. The panel-level monitoring is a great insurance policy for maximising lifetime generation.Great to have you well on your way to zero-carbon living! Theo B.Theo B. ★★★★★ After an exhaustive consultation where several options, some even quite unusual, we’re discussed I decided to go ahead and let Solarshare install the system. Everything was neatly installed and within the timeframe agreed.The system is now in a couple of months and has not given me the slightest problem. 100% happy and I can honestly recommend Solarshare to anyone thinking about gettting a solar system.Response from the ownerTheo , thank you very much for your recommendation. I am delighted all is working as expected. John L.John L. ★★★★★ Solar panels installed 6 weeks ago and we're delighted with them. Very professional team and everything ran very smoothly. Richard is a fountain of knowledge and took the time to really work with us to make sure that we got the solution that made most sense for us at a fair price. Highly recommend the team at SolarShare.Response from the ownerThanks John! Delighted to hear the positive feedback, very muchappreciated. Regards, Richard Helmut P.Helmut P. ★★★★★ Professional advice and installation throughout. The system works flawless since day one and we have reduced our grid dependenceResponse from the ownerHelmut, thanks for your positive comments, very kind. Jon-Sandra B.Jon-Sandra B. ★★★★★ We can thoroughly recommend Richard and his team. We appreciated a single point of contact for price/marketing and technical issues. We always felt that we were listened to, that the advice we received was honest and open, and that the team had the client’s best interests at heart. The survey was thorough and plenty of options were offered. There was never any doubt about technical proficiency and their knowledge of cutting-edge issues. The installation went really well and the team were thorough, helpful, neat and tidy. Follow-up has also been excellent. Great guys.Response from the ownerMany thanks Jon, very kind! A real pleasure to be of service. Toca S.Toca S. ★★★★★ Richard and his team installed a 3.1kw system for me in early May. I found them trustworthy and extremely helpful all the way through the process. Their customer focus and workmanship on the install was excellent. The system is working great (652kwh generated from May 7th to date). Richard didn't try to oversell the capabilities of the system and was happy to go through the expected outputs and return on investment scenarios in detail. My (€1800) grant was approved this week without any issues.I would highly recommend Solarshare if you are thinking of installing PV.Des K.Des K. ★★★★★ SolarShare provided excellent support to me when I was investigating which type of solar PV systems to instal on our home.. Richard is a fountain of knowledge and was very forthcoming in explaining various considerations in the design of our system.What I find really interesting is to see the full 6.5KW system output under clear skies here in Ireland. We see about 1/2 of this with a full covering of light clouds. Only on very cloudy, rainy days, as we experienced here a couple of weeks ago did we have a low output from the panels. The monitoring app is a fantastic way to visualise how the system is performing.I would highly recommend Richard and his team to anyone considering solar PV installationsMarkMark ★★★★★ Very good overall for price and service. Would recommend for anyone bringing solar power their home.Response from the ownerThanks Mark, I remember fondly the days when we could do installations. Looking forward to those days returning again soon, the Spring equinox is rapidly approaching! Venelin Y.Venelin Y. ★★★★★ The best quote I could get. Big variety of products. You will be guided if not a specialist.Precisely evaluation of possible power generation. Fast and quality work. Help with the grantResponse from the ownerThanks Venelin, very much appreciated. It's fair to say you knew your inverters from your diverters when we first spoke. It's always a pleasure to deal with customers who have done their research. js_loader

Common Questions.

Solar PhotoVoltaics (PV) is the technology which converts light into electricity. Using semiconducting materials, a photovoltaic system employs solar modules, each comprising a number of solar cells, which generate electrical power.

Solar Power has specific advantages as an energy source:

  • low cost
  • zero-carbon
  • low maintenance (no moving parts)
  • modular

SolarShare’s comprehensive SolarSurvey is designed to take you through the process of sizing the optimum solar PV system to maximize solar electricity generation for the size of your roof, its orientation to the sun, and your average annual electricity consumption.

A SolarShare system, depending on your configuration, will typically consist of the following components:

  • Solar PV panels, 6-18 (up to a max of 7kWp)
  • An inverter, to convert DC electricity to AC (up to 6kVA)
  • A battery, typically starting at 5kWh and expanding up to 15kWh and beyond

Solar PV panels typically have a design life of over 25 years. Product warranties are typically 12 years, with a linear performance warranty of 30 years, depending on the manufacturer.

Inverters have a design life of 10 to 20 years depending on the manufacturer. Product warranties are 10 years and up.

Batteries have a design life based on charge/discharge cycles which range from 5000 to 10000, with a time-based limit of 10 years usually applying. Depending on the manufacturer, the battery will be warrantied to have from 60% to 80% of its capacity after 10 years, but can be expected to continue operating after that.

When solar power is created, it must be used immediately, otherwise your unused electricity will spill over to the grid. To avoid spilling your excess electricity to the grid, a battery is needed. A battery stores excess solar electricity generated for use later in the day.

You will of course now get paid for any electricity you export to the grid so even if you do not have a battery you will still benefit from the electricity you generate but do not use immediately.

Once you fill in the form we can get it started.

The key information on the form is your Eircode. We use that to find your house on Google Maps.

This gives us a view of your roof. This allows us to:

  • See the size of your roof so we calculate how many panels can be installed.
  • We can see if any part of your roof is in shade. The less shade the better.
  • We can see how your roof is orientated to the sun.


We take this information and input it into some sophisticated software we have. This will tell us how much electricity it is possible to generate on your roof.  

Using this & the information you supply regarding your current electricity spend we can calculate how much you will save on your electricity bills. 

We do not investigate only 1 scenario.  We will bring you information based on different panel configurations and how the numbers work with or without a battery.

This part of the survey is followed by a consultation with you. Together, based on your budget and ambitions for any solar system you have installed we come up with the configuration that works best for you.

This approach takes a bit of time, often can stretch past 1 phone call. The effort involved reflects the fact that this is a significant purchase on your behalf.

Our objectives in this are simple. 

We aim to ensure you have & understand all the information you need to ensure you make the best decision for your home.

Considering these panels could be on your roof for 25 years I am sure you will agree this is time & effort very well spent.

The survey is completely free and without any obligation on your part to buy solar panels from us. 

Yes, you will.

As of February of 2022 the legislation has been passed in The Dáil that allows for the payment of what is called the Feed In Tariff for excess power generated by your panels.

By the end of August 2022 most companies will declare how much they are going to offer to their customers who via their solar panels send electricity back into the grid.  So far the following prices have been announced , Pinergy will pay 13.5c per kWh, SSE Airtricity & Electric Ireland will pay 14c per kWh, Energia will pay 18c per kWh and Bord Gais will pay 18.5c per kWh. Flogas come out on top paying 20c per kWh.
