Company History

Activ8 Solar Energies was established in 2007 having been previously known as Ciaran Marron Electrical from 2004. Since this distinct move, we are proud to have become Ireland’s number one installer of solar energy systems. In the solar industry for over 13 years the directors of Activ8 Solar Energies have gained their unrivaled knowledge and experience through the installation of over 10,000 systems supplied and installed across Ireland and the UK.

In May of 2009 Minister Eamon Ryan TD carried out the official opening of our new National Sales and Installation Centre and our premises here in Carrickmacross have served us really well, we have grown from strength to strength and now employ over 70 people, with big plans for expansion in 2020 with a brand new Activ8 Solar Energies HQ.

It was an honour to have such involvement from a high profile Minister back in 2009, just as it was an honour to have SSE Airtricity become 40% owners and a strategic partner in 2017, just 8 years on.

Thinking back to our office opening, that was during the recession! We are proud to have to come through that period with a growing company and a strategic partner in SSE Airtricity. It speaks volumes about the work of our employees, the quality of our service and the solar industry as a whole. We have grown our service offering and as well as supplying Solar PV systems for homeowners, we now cater for Part L specification and installation as well as large commercial systems.


All of our systems across the island are producing energy on a daily basis...

That is the equivalent carbon offset of burning 7,827,949 pounds of coal! We’re helping the environment one Solar PV system at a time and you could be next.
