A new scheme encouraging homeowners to install solar panels has been launched

The pilot scheme offers grants for the installation of solar panels and extra funds to install battery storage systems.

Environment Minister Denis Naughten says the scheme will allow people to turn their home into their very own “renewable power station.”

Announcing the grants for homeowners, Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Denis Naughten TD said:

“Turning your home into a renewable power station is now one step closer. Microgeneration is an incredibly exciting space that will allow citizens in local communities to generate their own electricity and contribute towards Ireland’s climate action targets.

“With this grant that I am announcing today, a typical 3-bed semi-detached house would spend about €1,800 on a solar panel system and would save approximately €220 per year on their electricity bills.
