Solar Panels support scheme: amendments and updates for Energia commercial customers
JULY 21 2023
Energia welcomes the enhanced supports for business through Solar PV Scheme
The grant support scheme for solar panels has been subject to amendments by the Government, which now cover a new range of installation sizes.

With this update, installations with capacity greater than 6 kWp up to 1,000 kWp (1 MW) will be covered. This includes small businesses and local shops together with larger manufacturing companies and public facilities, such as community buildings and sports centres. Installations that go up to 1MW could be eligible for a grant of up to €162,600.

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) is the entity managing the existing Non-Domestic Microgeneration Scheme, whose enhanced and amended version is estimated to cost up to €15 million for 2023. Necessary changes will be implemented by the SEAI in mid-July and applications will open at this time.

For Energia commercial customers, it is strongly recommended that companies liaise with Energia if they are considering a Solar PV installation. In some cases, for large energy consumers, it may have an unintended impact on their energy bill. In order to mitigate any adverse consequences, Energia is available to guide customers in their transition to net zero carbon making sure that the best commercial option is always made available in the customer’s best interest.
