Thinking About Going Solar For Your Home?

More electricity price rises on the way. Solar Panels on homes in Ireland are very effective and will generate free electricity for you for 25 years.

Take our Free Solar Survey & you will learn how much solar panels will cost you & how much electricity they will generate for you. Grab this opportunity to reduce your ever increasing electricity bills by up to 70%, get grant aided by the government to do it & help the planet while you are at it.

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.

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 

  • The size of your roof so we calculate how many panels it is possible to put on it.
  • 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.
