The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) provides various grants and incentives to support the installation of solar panels and promote renewable energy in Ireland. These grants aim to make solar energy more accessible and affordable for homeowners, businesses, and communities.

Solar PV Grant

The Solar PV Grant offers financial support for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. This grant is available to homeowners, community groups, and businesses. It provides a grant of up to a certain percentage of the eligible costs, depending on the system size and installation type.

Solar PV Pilot Grant

The Solar PV Pilot Grant is a targeted grant for community organizations and housing associations. It supports the installation of solar PV systems on community buildings and multi-unit social housing developments. The grant covers a portion of the eligible costs.

Better Energy Communities Scheme

The Better Energy Communities Scheme provides funding for community-led energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. This scheme supports solar PV installations as part of wider energy efficiency upgrades in community facilities, housing, and public buildings.

Accelerated Capital Allowance (ACA) Scheme

The ACA scheme allows businesses to claim tax relief on the capital expenditure for qualifying energy-efficient equipment, including solar PV systems. This scheme enables businesses to offset the cost of installing solar panels against their taxable profits in the year of purchase.

These grants and schemes are subject to eligibility criteria, application processes, and funding availability. It is recommended to visit the SEAI website or contact SEAI directly for the most up-to-date information on solar panel grants and how to apply. They can provide detailed guidance and support throughout the application process.
