ADVANTAGES of Using Solar Energy
Truly Renewable Energy
Unlike fossil fuels, solar energy is abundant all over the world. Generate free energy from the sun all year round, even on overcast days thanks to solar PV technology.
Cut Down on Energy Bills
Homeowners in Cork stand to save a substantial amount on energy bills with solar panel installations. A typical residential 4 kW system, for example, can save around €900 per year.
Low Maintenance Costs
Since there are no moving mechanical parts in a solar PV system, the maintenance costs are low. Routine cleaning of the panels themselves keeps them operating at peak efficiency.
An Excellent Investment
The full cost of a residential solar PV system is well worth every euro. Depending on the configuration and size of the installation, a typical break-even point ranges from around 5-7 years.
Get Paid for Surplus Energy
Starting in mid-2021, homeowners in Ireland can get paid through Feed-in Tariffs according to the European Union for surplus energy generated from renewable sources such as solar PV systems.
Installing PV Solar Panels in Cork
Contrary to popular belief, modern solar PV installations work well during cloudy, overcast days. Cork is well-situated within Ireland to generate solar energy, especially for south-facing or east-west orientations. Moreover, research indicates that solar panels tend to work better in cooler climates, which makes Ireland ideal for residential solar PV installations. The fact that Cork is located in the sunnier southeast further helps to generate additional energy.
There has never been a better time to invest in high-quality solar panels in Cork. Wizer Energy has a wide range of solutions for homeowners and businesses to start generating their own clean, renewable solar energy today.
Finghin O Driscoll
Solar Panels, Cobh, Cork
We recently had the privilege of completing a full solar energy installation for Mr. Finghin O Driscoll semi-detached home here in Cobh, County Cork. As part of this project, we performed the following:
- 3 kWp solar PV system size: we installed 10 of Znshine 300 watt solar PV panels, generating 2,700 kWh per year. We used a 3 kW Trannergy inverter.
Warranties: the solar panels come with a 12-year warranty, a 25-year performance warranty. The inverter comes with a 5-year warranty and a 5-year warranty for additional inverter parts.
- Performance: Finghin now receives 49% of his household energy from solar on average, every year.
- Environmental benefits: Finghin’s home now avoids 940 kg of CO2 per year, the equivalent of 20 long-haul flights or 181 trees planted.
- Energy savings: Finghin is now saving nearly €100 every two months on his energy bill, and stands to save over €12,000 in lifetime energy bill savings.

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar panels work by absorbing sunlight along the surface of the panels. This generates an electrical flow as direct current (DC). The solar panels must convert this current into alternating current (AC) to be useful in household applications, so an inverter is used to convert the DC into AC.
It is dependent on the configuration and energy consumption, but to give an example, a typical household in Cork with a south-facing solar PV installation will cost around €7,000 to €13,000. Other factors to consider include VAT and financing such as the SEAI Grant, which will affect the final cost.
Solar panels are certainly worth the investment in Cork County, given its sunnier south-eastern location in Ireland. Nevertheless, overcast and cloudy days will still generate sufficient solar energy to make the investment worthwhile. Not only will homeowners save hundreds on energy bills each year, but the solar panels will pay themselves off completely in anywhere from around 5-10 years.
Yes. In Ireland, homeowners that wish to retrofit their roof with solar panels are eligible for funding from SEAI Grants. There are specific requirements in order to be considered eligible, and the amount of funding can vary depending on the kilowatt-peak (kWp) of the system and the desired energy storage system. Homeowners can apply online using the SEAI claims portal here.

Depending on your energy consumption and the orientation of your panels, the number of solar panels needed may vary. Generally, a south-facing or east-west facing configuration for a 3.3 kW solar PV system with typical daily consumption requires around 10 solar panels. This 10 panels system would easily power your homes base load plus a white good i.e. dishwasher/washing machine, even in dull weather. If you’d like a more accurate quote for your home in Cork, reach out to us at Wizer Energy.
Each square metre of solar panel generates around 195W on a sunny, clear day. To use a more realistic example, a typical 3.3 kW residential solar PV installation that is about 20 square metres in area will generate around 3,200 kW per year, which is about 45% of the average annual electricity consumed in an average Irish home.
The cost of installing solar panels in Cork depends largely on energy usage and the size of the installation. For an average household, a typical 3.3 kW system will suffice in Cork provided that it is south-facing or east-west facing. Such a system can cost anywhere from about €4,000 to €6,000.
Depending on your energy consumption and the orientation of your solar panels, the roof space required to install solar panels varies. For a typical 3.3 kW solar PV system in Cork, around 16 square metres are needed to install about 10 solar panels.
