We are delighted to announce that we have secured the distribution rights for sonnenBatterie in Ireland.
Sonnen are the market leader in Germany and have had great success in the U.S. in 2015. This year they are starting out in the U.K. and Irish market and we have been chosen as a suitably qualified partner.
The eco 8 will be launched in May, In our opinion it is the best and most fully developed storage solution on the market. Correctly sized it will cut your purchase of day rate electricity to the absolute minimum and it has the option of a fail-safe power supply should you experience a power outage. https://www.sonnenbatterie.de/en-gb/sonnenbatterie
On Wednesday the product won Innovative Product Award and Overall Product Award – best product of the show, at the SEAI Energy Show in Dublin. This is a great indictment of the sonnen system, which delivers on SEAI objectives towards energy efficiency.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MWPqtSL4EY
From the initial enquiry at noon on the 17th to installation completion at 4 p.m. on the 19th, Solar Electric “pulled out all the stops” to help a local builder with a 10 panel detached house project near the River Barrow.
We can’t promise such a quick response time in ever case but, if necessary we will try. We always hold stock of solar electric panels, mounting systems and electrical components to complete the project.
Get the VAT back on installations before the end of 2016. Installing solar PV qualifies as a home improvement under the scheme. Solar Electric are an approved contractor so, on projects above €5,000 on your own or a tenanted property, you can reclaim the VAT through your tax code:
Finance Bill (No. 2) 2013 provides for a Home Renovation Incentive (HRI) scheme which will run from 25 October 2013 to 31 December 2016. The incentive provides for tax relief for Homeowners by way of a tax credit at 13.5% of qualifying expenditure on repair, renovation or improvement work carried out on a principal private residence.
Great news for Ireland and Solar PV. The Energy White Paper launched this week acknowledges that Solar PV is part of the solution for the generation of zero-carbon electricity in Ireland. To that end there is a pledge to support both micro-generation on roofs and megawatt scale solar farms in 2016. See www.DCENR.gov.ie
Solar energy is perfect for Dublin and it quickly pays for itself- Irish Independent 15/02/2015
Investing in solar energy production can pay for itself in just seven to 13 years, a new report published by Dublin City Council has revealed
The IBM Smarter Cities Challenge report concludes that Dublin is a good location to produce solar energy because of the amount of daylight the city enjoys. But the report says that solar power can deliver on its potential only if it benefits from the same incentives that have helped other renewable energy sources in Ireland.
The report says that as solar power can be produced and used in the same location it increases our energy security. “Solar can play an important role in helping Ireland meet an EU requirement to provide 16pc of energy from renewable sources by 2020,” it says.
To mark the publication of the first comprehensive study of solar energy production and its use in the capital, the city council will install solar panels on the Civic Offices on Wood Quay and four public library buildings in 2015.
