Why generate your own energy?

Lower your carbon footprint by leading the way for positive change in our environment, by reducing the usage of harmful fossil fuels.

 

Energy costs are rising globally, avoid these costs by becoming proficient in creating your own green, renewable energy.

Use Solar PV panels to reduce your electricity bills. Select an add on such as a:


1. Battery to store any excess electricity
2. Hot water diverter to heat your hot water.

Alternatively export any excess electricity to the grid through the Clean Export Guarantee (CEG) scheme.

What is solar battery storage & how does it work?


The main advantage of solar battery storage is the ability to take the energy generated by Solar PV panels during the day and store it to power your home in the evening and overnight.


Solar PV panels generate and supply electricity to your home during the day. With energy prices increasing, it makes sense to use all of the electricity produced by the Solar PV panels. Battery storage makes this possible. The excess energy your home is not currently using goes into charging your battery (options available for smart or dumb batteries). So instead of sending the excess electricity back to the grid, you store it in a battery that can then discharge and power your appliances when required.


 

What is a hot water diverter and how does it work?

 

A solar panel power diverter takes surplus solar electricity and sends it to your immersion heater. Heated water can then be stored until it's needed. This is a cheaper alternative to the battery option.

We have this product offering available in 3 different options:

1


Solar PV

2


Solar PV + a hot water diverter

3


Solar PV + a non-smart/smart battery

Smart Battery FAQs

What is Solar PV?

Solar PV, also known as Photovoltaics, uses the sun's energy and converts daylight into renewable energy. The electricity is then used in the home, which reduces your need to buy electricity from your energy supplier. When a Solar PV system produces more energy than a home needs, the extra energy is stored in your battery. Solar PV is different to Solar Thermal. Solar Thermal heats water only, whilst Solar PV provides free electricity.

How long will the installation take?

Solar PV Panels and the Moixa Smart Battery typically take 1-2 days to install but more time may be required dependent on the home. Exact installation times will be determined after site surveys.

Who will install my battery and Solar Panels?

Our trusted Moixa Accredited Installer will install both your Solar Panels and battery. They will firstly call to survey your home, prior to the installation.

Can I add a battery to my existing PV system?

Yes you can add a new Moixa Smart Battery to your Solar PV system if you already have one installed.

What does the survey comprise of?

The survey looks at measuring the dimensions and orientation of your home, checking your electrical configuration to determine your eligibility and assess the optimum place to install the equipment.

How do I apply for my grant?

You apply for your grant on the SEAI website here under ‘How to apply’.

How long does the grant application take?

Currently it takes up to 6 weeks for SEAI to process your application. You can track updates on your application at point 5 under the ‘How to apply’ on the SEAI website here.
