Extra Energy Can Work for You

As per the European Union regulations, households in Ireland can receive compensation via Feed-in Tariffs for surplus renewable energy generated by installations like solar PV systems. This program commenced in mid-2021. 

VAT Exemption

As of May 1st, 2023, the Irish government has eliminated the VAT rate on solar installations, reducing it from 13.5% to 0%. This translates to significant savings, potentially saving you hundreds of euros on the cost of solar panel installation. 


Despite common belief, modern solar panels installations can perform effectively – even on overcast days! Galway, along with the broader West Coast, is in an excellent position for solar energy generation. Studies also show that solar panels function best in temperate climates, making Ireland an ideal location for solar energy production.

The number of panels needed depends on your home’s size. Typically, an average three-bedroom family home may require 10 panels to fulfill their electricity requirements. With today’s average panel size of 435 watts per panel, this equates to a system size of 4.35kWp. It’s important to note that these are general guidelines – individual circumstances may vary.  

Solar panel installation does not require planning permission in Ireland. However, please consult your local authority for clarification on planning permission if your home falls under certain conditions, such as being a protected structure or situated in a protected area. 

Thanks to the Government Microgeneration Support Scheme, the answer is yes. Irish homes equipped with a registered microgeneration device can now sell surplus electricity back to Ireland’s electricity grid.
