Why get the grant with Activ8 Solar Energies

We've been working with SEAI grants for over 10 years, we even helped in an advisory role on formulating the new grant.

When discussing your Solar PV system with one of our solar, we run through the grant amount relevant to your system size. We have always and will continue to always give the amount of the grant off the price of your system, at the point of purchase. We then administer all grant work in Activ8 and retrospectively claim the grant back, in the months following installation.

This allows you to avail of the full grant amount up front, rather than waiting months and enduring the process alone.

This is a pilot scheme from SEAI and although we would love to have it forever, it’s impossible to say when the scheme will end or be downgraded. Therefore it is important to state that it is currently a pilot scheme and up for periodic review by the department.

Once you haven’t claimed the SEAI Solar PV grant, on the current property, then you’re fine.

In fact, there are bonuses for combining multiple SEAI grants as part of energy upgrades on your home. After all, it’s a win-win situation when you’re not only saving money but doing your bit for the environment with the help of the SEAI.

No. We handle the grant as part of any purchase and installation. We will work with you in gathering the information needed for the grant, such as your MPRN and also arrange a BER assessment to take place after the installation.

"The adagium 'you pay for what you get' is certainly true. I can compare my experience to that of family members and friends in Netherlands. There was no hassle whatsoever with Activ8, they promptly called back when I had queries and took their time to answer my queries, and also managed to install the system very quickly 5 weeks after signing, which I really wanted. Good feedback with documentation and warranties. Absolutely great that I did not need to do anything except sit back, and now I have the winter to check the performance. When the sun shines it is like playing with dinky toys seeing the energy coming in, and even moving on back to the energy net. Great!"
