Top Tip – incorrect bank details can delay your grant payment. When entering your BIC and IBAN make sure the details are correct.

Your installer must apply to ESB Networks to connect the solar PV system to the electricity network.
They must do this before installing the solar PV system. This application process takes at least 4 weeks / 20 working days.

Once your connection to ESB has been approved, the installation can go ahead. You either pay the solar PV company or make a payment agreement.

Your solar PV company will give you the documentation related to your installation. They will submit copies to SEAI electronically.
Top Tip – SEAI can only process grant payment once your solar PV company has uploaded ALL the required documentation. Try to get your solar PV company to upload ALL documentation ASAP after the installation, ideally within 1-3 days of completion.

  • Applications for payment can only be processed once ALL documentation has been uploaded.
  • From this point onwards, please allow between 4 to 6 weeks for payment, with additional time if an inspection is required. Please note, the payment timeline is 4 to 6 weeks from when SEAI receives ALL the required documentation from the solar PV company if the works are not selected for a SEAI inspection.
  • In line with the Department of Finance circular 44/2006, If you receive grants, subsidies or similar type payments from a government department or public authority of more than €10,000 during a calendar year, you will need a Tax Clearance Certificate. The eTC system allows you to apply for a Tax Clearance Certificate online. In general, you will have to apply using:
  • Revenue Online Service (ROS) if you are a business customer
  • More information on obtaining a Tax Clearance Certificate can be found on
