Solar Panels are becoming increasingly popular in Ireland.Within the next 10 years the majority of houses will have at least one solar panel installed. Most people think that it would be a waste to put solar panels on houses in Ireland but what they don't know is that you actually don't need that much direct sun light for them to work. Solar panels are most efficient in the months of May-September but with the installation of batteries the energy can be stored for use in the duller winter months.

The benefits of Solar Photovoltaic Systems are as follows:

  • They can be used to heat water.
  • They give free electricity.
  • They save the environment as they reduce CO2 emissions and the use of fossil fuels.
