Know what’s what when it comes to energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is quite a complex subject, but the more you know about it, the more you can save, and the more comfortable a lifestyle you can lead. Check out the following sections for a quick overview of what you need to know.

WILL SOLAR PV SAVE ME MONEY?

 

Yes. And not only will it lower your energy bills, but it will also improve your BER energy rating, which lets you get a lower mortgage interest rate and makes resale of your home that much easier when the time comes.

ARE THERE ANY GRANTS AVAILABLE?

 

Yes. You are entitled to a grant from SEAI after the installation of energy upgrades by a registered SEAI installer such as Evolve Eco Solutions. We are a one stop shop for the entire process and are responsible for the satisfactory completion of the entire project.

These grants are as follows:

Mid-Terrace €1200
Semi-detached or end of terrace €1300

If there is no existing EV charging system or network in your car park, the company responsible for managing the complex can apply to SEAI for grant support. SEAI will provide up to 80% funding for infrastructure costs and will also offer €600 per charge point installed. The management company can make independent arrangements with you to pay for any difference to acquire ownership of the charger.

Terraced/semi-det/detached €600

ARE THERE ANY SCHEMES FOR FARMERS?

 

For the first time, farmers will be allowed sell electricity back to the grid, and will also get grants for installing solar panels.

Currently, farmers can avail of a 40% grant for the installation of solar panels on the roofs of sheds under the target modernisation scheme (Tams). This figure is expected to increase shortly.

TYPICAL COMMERCIAL PV COST ANALYSIS:

Solar panels being installed
The cost of installing a solar PV system is often one of the first questions we’re asked at Wizer Energy. Business owners may have doubts about the return on investment, how much they stand to gain financially from this free, abundant and renewable energy source, and more. Is it worth it? Consider the example to gain a better idea:

*Note that the estimates given are approximate and for illustration purposes only.

2021 Business Electricity Costs in Ireland: Estimated 14c per unit, rising steadily with inflation.
2021 Estimated Cost of Electricity from Solar: Estimated 9c per unit.
Lifetime Cost of Electricity from Solar: Estimated 7c per unit, safe from inflation!
Cost of Solar Panels: Estimated €850 to €1,500 per kWp installed.
Total Estimated Cost for a 50 kWp System (VAT not included): Estimated €43,000 to €60,000.
Internal Rate of Return (IRR): Estimated 14.29%
Payback Period: On average, between 6-10 years
Yearly Savings: Estimated €5,250 per year in energy expenses
SEAI Grants: Consider that thousands to tens of thousands of euros can be saved through one of the SEAI’s many grants for businesses in Ireland.

EV Chargers
Domestic & Commercial

 

**Just as electric vehicles become more ubiquitous in Ireland, the demand for charging stations has also grown. Domestic EV charger installations are becoming popular in Ireland for all of their myriad benefits, such as convenience, compatibility with solar PV systems, significant cost savings and more.

Evolve Eco Solutions specialises in the supply and installation of reliable, high-quality ZAPTEC EV charging stations that are incredibly user-friendly. Our EV chargers come with smartphone and remote operation, and ‘smart’ timers to optimise charging times during peak tariff hours, are great for use in larger parking areas, housing blocks, office parking etc., due to smart ID cards and smart load balancing on multiple chargers, Moreover, our EV chargers are fully compatible with our domestic and commercial solar PV systems so that you can charge your EV with abundant, renewable energy from the sun.

Our team of renewable energy installers in Ireland can install a brand-new domestic EV charger in a matter of hours, after which you can reliably keep your electric vehicle topped up and ready to go at any time.

Extremely happy with the service provided. Very competitive pricing. Everyone was very polite, clean and careful in their work. Installation didn't feel rushed at all, and nobody had any issues stopping to explain what was happening. Have already referred Evolve on to friends and family.

Everything from quotation to work done went smoothly, took about 3-4 weeks , which was extremely fast. Very professional dealing and any teething problems with set up were resolved extremely quickly. They were very flexible and accommodating to last minute changes (increased scope) which was greatly appreciated. Highly recommended.

Top notch work, excellent team, very professional and friendly, clean and tidy, installed my PV system on the agreed dates. Communication was great, they didn’t leave till everything was working as expected and came back after installation to make sure everything was working properly and brought me through some details on the app. Open to guide me through every single questions (both before the contract and after we signed it), Warren and team did also all paperwork for SEAI and made the process very seamless for me. Very happy with Evolve Eco Solutions and solar system they installed. Would recommend to anyone.

Had lots of Providers reach out to me, but honestly I heard great things about Evolve Eco Solutions and that Warren was fantastic to work with. I can concur with all of the reviews and recommendations I received .Also shout out for Rachel in the office sorting the SEAI grant paperwork on their end. Happy to recommend Evolve Eco Solutions from start to Finish, also impressive was the turnaround time from first contact to getting the system installed. 3-4 weeks if I remember correctly. other companies wanting to hold onto my deposit for 3 months didn't sit well with me. So much appreciated to Evolve Eco Solutions for the super service

My Dad recommended Evolve Eco Solutions for installing Solar Panels on my roof, Warren his guys arrived bang on time and had the whole job completed within 2 days. They started at 8:00am last Wednesday and when I came home from work on Friday evening the solar panels were up and running perfectly and the place was left spotless, I can definitely recommend them. Thanks guys.
