Why Choose Solar PV

Why Solar Electricity?

Solar Power NI have partnered with Solarwatt to bring customers in Ireland world-leading solar technology

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems:

  • Can provide an ongoing income for exported electricity
  • Can provide an income for ALL electricity generated via Renewables Obligation Certificate’s (ROCs)
  • Our partnership with Solarwatt ensures we are the first, and currently only, installation company offering both a 30 year performance warranty and 30 year product warranty on our Glass Glass panels.
  • Savings Every Month A Solarwatt solar electric system powers your home so you use considerably less electricity from the public utility.
  • Hedge Against Price Hikes Offset energy prices and unpredictable rate hikes by generating your own free power for decades.
  • Protect The Environment Most electricity is generated by burning coal that emits pollutants into the atmosphere. Solar electricity comes from a clean and renewable source—the sun.
  • Reliable Power As a world leader in solar manufacturing, Solarwatt solar modules generate power for decades and are backed with a limited 25-year warranty on power output.
  • Increased Property Value Solar is a smart upgrade that makes your home more desirable and valuable.

Maintenance

Solar PV needs little maintenance - you'll just need to keep the panels relatively clean and make sure trees don't begin to overshadow them. The panels should last 25 years or more.

Renewables Obligation Certificates

Ofgem are responsible for the process of accrediting and issuing NIROC's to generators throughout the UK. For Solar PV, up to 50kW, the government will provide NIROC’s worth 12p per kWh. After the installation, Power NI will provide the householder with an import/export meter; this reading is taken each month or year by the householder and submitted to Ofgem. Based on the reading, Ofgem will issue NIROC’s, these are then transferred to Power NI, and payment is made via bank transfer in mid-July each year. The ROC payment will be made until 31 March 2037.

Export Payments

Electricity not used by the household can be exported to the national grid; currently NIE pay 4p per kWh for this exported energy. This export is made in addition to ROC payments.
