2-day Response to Part L “emergency”

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.

Home Renovation Incentive (HRI)

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.

Report says, “Solar Energy is Perfect for Dublin “

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.

We in Solar Electric didn’t really need to read this, we have always know that Solar PV is ideally suited to Ireland and that economically and environmentally it ticks all the boxes, contact us to increase your energy security too.
