Solar PV Panels and Smart Batteries from Energia

This Energia trial offer has now ended.

In 2019 Energia launched an exclusive customer only offer on Solar PV with a Moixa Smart Battery. This was a unique opportunity to adopt this innovative renewable energy technology. In return for participation and feedback in this project, customers benefited from available grants on behalf of SEAI and Energia at a total saving of up to 50%. You can still register interest to avail of this product.

Why generate your own energy?

You can reduce your electricity bills and monitor you electricity usage in real-time using your personal Moixa dashboard.

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.

What is solar battery storage and how does it work?

The main advantage of solar battery storage is the ability to take the energy generated by Solar Panels during the day and store it to power your home in the evening and overnight. Through our relationship with Moixa, we are excited to afford Energia customers a tailored solution for your home.

So how does it work?

Solar Panels generate renewable energy during the day and this energy is used to supply electricity to your home. With energy prices generally thought to be under pressure, it makes sense to try and use as much of the electricity solar panels are producing as possible, sending it back to the grid only at desirable times. Battery storage makes this all possible. The excess energy your home is not currently using goes into charging your Moixa Smart Battery, 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 the sun isn’t shining or sending it to the grid when it is beneficial to do so.

The benefits of Solar PV & Smart Batteries

The Solar PV Panels paired with Moixa's pioneering smart battery and energy-management software may have many benefits for you and your entire household.


  • Gain greater understanding and energy independence by generating and storing your own renewable electricity.
  • Your reduced energy consumption may lower the overall cost of your bills, keeping you in control.
  • With this smart home system, your home may be future proofed for electric vehicle charging, greener living and a more sustainable lifestyle.

FAQs

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

Solar PV, also known as Photovoltaic, 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 energy from Energia or your whoever is your energy supplier. When a Solar PV system produces more energy than a home needs, the extra energy can go to your immersion heater. Solar PV is different to Solar Thermal (Cylindrical Evacuated Tube Panels. Solar Thermal heats water only, Solar PV provides free electricity and hot water.
Our selected energy services provider and Moixa Accredited Installer will install both your Solar Panels and battery. If you are eligible and successful in being chosen for the trial, they will firstly call to survey your home, prior to the installation.
 

The Moixa Smart Battery can be placed in any accessible location within 10m of the consumer unit. It is commonly installed in your cupboard under the stairs, or in a utility room. The battery is 85*60*30cm. The unit requires 10cm of space around the edge for ventilation.

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