Benefits of Using
Solar Energy in your Business:
Reduced Operating Costs
Solar energy can offset your business energy consumption and, in turn, your energy bills by up to 60 per cent, potentially saving hundreds or even thousands of euros each month.
Every business that carefully plans its finances must consider the internal rate of return of various projects. Solar PV systems can yield an investment rate of return in excess of 14 per cent.
More Affordable than Ever
The cost of solar PV technology has fallen dramatically in the past few decades, and by over 70 per cent in the past decade alone. What are you waiting for?

Commercial PV Systems Installation
When it comes to commercial PV systems, there are many advantages for businesses worthy of consideration. In addition to the potential for massive savings on energy expenditures, a commercial PV system can also benefit the environment and subsequently work hand in hand with the goals and vision of your CSR policy.
With the cost of fuel and electricity constantly rising and with businesses increasingly seeking cost-effective solutions in terms of energy consumption, solar PV systems are understandably becoming the ideal solution for many business owners in Ireland.
According to Bord Gáis, Ireland is an ideal location for commercial PV systems since cloudy weather and overcast days are not a problem for energy generation, and our cooler climate may actually be more productive than dry, hot climates for solar energy production.
The installation of a high-quality commercial PV system is an excellent investment that pays off in the long term. Depending on the size and configuration of your solar PV system, you could see a complete return on investment anywhere from around 10-15 years, all while generating free energy from the power of the sun.
There has never been a more attractive time than now to consider retrofitting your business with a commercial PV system and to start generating free, abundant solar energy for many years to come.
Bloggs Poultry of Ballincollig, County Cork
The team at Wizer Energy have completed a commercial PV system installation for Mr. Joe Bloggs, sole proprietor of Bloggs Poultry in Ballincollig, County Cork. We provided the following services for Mr. Bloggs:
Work carried out
- Initial Site Visit: We met with Joe to discuss his energy needs as well as to investigate the premises of his poultry plant and to determine any opportunities or challenges present.
- Design and Installation: Mr. Bloggs requested a powerful 30 kWp commercial PV system to maintain his existing operations. This system consists of 110 high-quality solar PV panels that generate a combined 29,000 kWh of clean, renewable energy every year.
- Environmental Benefits: Joe has reduced the carbon footprint of his poultry plant by at least 15 tonnes of CO2 per year.
- Investment Potential: Despite the high up-front initial installation cost for this large PV system, Joe is now generating free energy and is saving over €600 per month on his energy expenditures. The payback period is estimated to be 14 years.

Frequently Asked Questions
Commercial photovoltaic (PV) systems work by converting natural sunlight into electrical current for your business. Specifically, photovoltaic cells are arranged into panels, and panels are arranged into rooftop systems that absorb sunlight. When light hits the cell, it generates a direct (DC) electrical current. This current is then channeled into a solar inverter, which converts the DC into alternating current (AC), which is compatible with your phone, kettle, television set, and so on.
The cost of a commercial PV installation can vary significantly based on factors such as the size of the system, quality of panel and inverter products, and more. Generally, it’s best to think of the cost in terms of kWp. Business owners can expect to pay around €850 up to around €2,000 per kWp, plus 13.5% VAT.
Commercial PV systems can benefit businesses in many ways, for example: greatly reducing energy expenses, generating a greener, more sustainable image by benefiting the environment, excellent investment potential, and the ability to receive funding via SEAI grants, to name a few. Contact Wizer Energy to learn more about the potential benefits for your business.
Yes. Business owners in Ireland may be eligible for significant funding from various SEAI grants. Quite often, the eligibility criteria for these schemes may be selective, so it is a good idea to learn more about each scheme before applying. Consult us here at Wizer Energy and we can assist you with SEAI funding schemes.
In Ireland, commercial solar PV systems are definitely ideal for businesses. Provided that your business has appropriate roof space at a good pitch to receive, preferably, sunlight predominantly via a south-facing or east-west facing configuration, solar PV systems are an excellent choice for business owners in Ireland.
Only one commercial PV system is needed to power a building, but the real question is more about the system’s kWp capacity and energy consumption. A small shop, for example, may get by with a simple 3.3 kW system (about 10 panels). A light manufacturing shop or medium-sized business may need a 30 kW system (about 110 panels). Large operations such as 100 kW systems and solar farms require vast amounts of space. Contact Wizer to get a more accurate quote.
The amount of power generated by a commercial PV system depends mostly on the system’s kWp and, of course, the amount of natural sunlight absorbed by the panels. To give an example, a small business system of 3 kW will likely generate around 3,000 kWh per year. A medium-sized 30 kW system will yield around 29,000 kWh per year.
In Ireland, the cost of installing a commercial PV system ranges from around €850 up to around €2,000 per kWp, depending on the choice of installer, product quality, and labour required. Thus, a complete 10 kW system for a retail shop could cost around €10,000 before VAT and SEAI grants are applied.
The size of each individual commercial PV panel is slightly larger than panels used in domestic PV systems. Given that the size of commercial PV systems varies quite a bit, the roof space needed also varies. For example, a large 100 kW system requires about 650 square metres of roof space.
