No previous funding for Solar PV at this MPRN

Solar Water Heating Grant SEAI 

Solar thermal systems transform energy from the sun into hot water for your home. They are designed to meet 50 – 60% of your annual hot water needs.

This grant will help you install a solar thermal system to heat hot water for your home. Learn about the grant values and how to apply.

Grant value for solar water heating

Each individual grant offers a fixed value.

Grant name Value Apply
Solar water heating grant €1200 How do I apply

This type of grant is based on the energy upgrade being applied to your entire home. The solar thermal system should be based on the average number of people that could live in a home of your size. It should not be based on the number of occupants.

Your registered contractor should carry out this compliance check before work starts. Failure to comply may result in the grant not being paid.

Heat Pump System Grant SEAI

Heat pumps are renewable heating systems offering lower energy costs and reduced carbon emissions. Your home must well insulated to benefit from a heat pump.

This grant covers a range of heat pump systems and, where applicable, a grant towards your technical assessment. Heat pump grants are paid for first time systems. They are not paid for replacement heat pump systems where a heat pump was already present in the home.

Who can apply

All homeowners, including private landlords, whose homes were built and occupied before 2021 can apply. This is defined as the date your electricity meter was installed. This is different to other grant measures where the home must be built before 2011.

Grant for technical assessment

We offer a €200 grant towards the technical assessment of your home. This grant is only payable in conjunction with the heat pump system grant. To qualify for this grant you must:

  • Use an SEAI registered Technical Advisor
  • Complete the heat pump system and any upgrades required according to the programme rules

Full details of these requirements can be found in the SEAI Domestic Technical Standards and Specification and should be discussed with your Technical Advisor.

Non-Domestic Microgene Scheme SEAI

Receive government grant aid towards the installation of solar PV for your business, farm, school, community centres, or other non-profit organisation.

The Non-Domestic Microgen Grant (NDMG) provides financial assistance to help businesses and other sectors to install solar PV panels to generate electricity on site. This technology reduces commercial electricity costs and increases security of supply, while enhancing a positive sustainability image. Grant funding is available for systems up to a maximum 1000kWp.

Experience many benefits when you choose to install solar PV;

  • Reduce your electricity costs
  • Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
  • Contribute to reaching Irelands Climate goals
  • Receive a government grant of up to €162,600.
Who can apply

This grant is available to:

  • Businesses
  • The agricultural sector
  • Public sector bodies
  • Schools
  • Community centres
  • Non-profit societies
Grant Amounts for the Solar PV System

The grant amount you receive is based on the standard output of your solar PV system. A solar PV system with an output of a maximum 1000kWp can be grant funded through the scheme. If the system installed is larger than 1000kWp, then the applicant may apply for the maximum grant offering of €162,600* and this is available for systems from 1kWp to a maximum of 1000kWp.

*Figure based on the maximum grant offering

Solar PV System Grant Value
1kWp* €900
2kWp €1,800
3kWp €2,100
4kWp €2,400
5kWp €2,400
6kWp €2,400
7kWp – 20kWp €300/kWp
21kWp – 200kWp €200/kWp
201kWp – 1000kWp (1MWp) €150/kWp

* kilo Watt peak (standard test output of a PV panel)
Example – A typical 30kWp solar PV system installed typically consists of 75 solar PV panels with an overall area of 125m2.

Reimagining the power of energy.

Cost Optimization

Cost optimization for turbines typically involves several strategies aimed at reducing expenses related to their design, manufacturing, installation, operation, and maintenance while ensuring performance and reliability.


Monitoring turbines involves continuous observation and analysis of various parameters to ensure optimal performance, prevent failures, and maximize energy output.

Smart Grid

Smart grid turbines refer to wind turbines that are integrated into a smart grid infrastructure, allowing for enhanced communication, control, and optimization of energy production and distribution.

Load Balancing

Load balancing with turbines typically involves managing the variability of wind energy production to match the fluctuating demand on the electrical grid.

Renewable Energy

These turbines convert the kinetic energy of the resource into mechanical or electrical energy.

Predictive Analytics

Predictive analytics for turbines involves using historical and real-time data to forecast future turbine behavior, identify potential issues before they occur, and optimize performance.

Capacity Market

Turbines, particularly those used in renewable energy generation, can participate in capacity markets to help ensure grid reliability.

Demand Response

Demand response typically involves modifying electricity consumption in response to grid conditions or price signals.
