Solar Panels in Ireland
What you need to know…
How Do Solar Panels Work? Most solar panels today are the “photovoltaic” type. This means that they convert daylight directly into electricity. Solar panels produce a type of electricity called “DC”. Therefore, an inverter is used to convert this into “AC” electricity which is the type of electricity you use in your home. The inverter gets connected directly into your fuse box, powering appliances all around your home.
How Much Can You Save With Solar Panels in Ireland? As a general guide, you can reduce your electricity bill by around 50-75% by going solar. This will depend on how many panels you install as well as whether or not you choose to install a battery. For most Irish households, that translates into savings of around €400 – €1,200 per year. You can make additional savings on oil/gas if you use those for water heating.
How Many Solar Panels Should I Get? This mainly depends on the amount of electricity that you use. As a rough guide, 10 panels would be about right for someone who spends €800 per year on electricity. If your electricity bill is closer to €1,200 then consider going for 15 panels. This also depends on the power of the panels. For example, you will require fewer panels if you use 400 Watt versions than if you use 300 Watt versions.
