Solar for Schools

We are currently looking for schools that would like to install Solar PV. Our pilot projects will be in Wexford and Kilkenny but we welcome expressions of interest from other parts of the country.

A Feed in Tariff that supports on-site generation is expected within 12 months. This will reward production everyday and provide an income stream to pay for the investment in solar electric panels.

Funding for Solar PV will initially come from PTAs or the county council. It may be possible to introduce a solution funded by ethical investors, where the RESS goes to the investor and the school benefits from carbon-free electricity at a reduced rate  – watch this space.
