Solar PV 2017-07-03T08:43:20+00:00

Solar PV.     It’s Coming.    It’s Here.

With over 7,000+ solar Installs in Ireland, we are the most trusted solar installer in Ireland to deliver in the growing solar electric market in Ireland.

Why Solar PV?

Solar PV, or solar electric, is a growing technology in Ireland, mainly in commercial buildings due to the lack of government support for domestic owners, but despite the lack of funding or grants, homeowners are starting to see the long term value that solar electric panels can bring. Solar PV generates DC electricity on your roof and uses inverter technology to change to AC electricity for use all around your home. This technology is something our customers can vouch for! Besides the fact that it offers endless electricity, it also has the following benefits:

  • Free, Guaranteed Electricity: Our Solar PV systems carry a 20 year guarantee, meaing you’ll be getting free electricity guaranteed over that period.
  • Heating your water: As well as producing electricity for use all around the home, when there is an excess of supply, it will heat your water before being exported to the grid.
  • Saves the environment: Solar PV helps reduce the emission of CO2 and reduce the need for electricity generation from fossil fuels and therefore protects the environment.

Roof Mounting

ESDEC Mounting Systems

ESDEC BV develops, manufactures and supplies professional mounting structures for the mounting of solar panels on roofs, called ClickFit and FlatFix. ClickFit is the collective name for the slanting roof mounting structures. FlatFix is the collective name for the mounting structures for flat roofs. We supply both ESDEC solutions for all types of roofs and situations.

The innovative mounting structures are different because they are easy to install, without compromising on the reliability and durability of the product. This is beneficial for the final quality and longevity of the PV system, backed up by the 20-year product warranty.

  • Patented technology only available in Ireland through Activ8 Energies
  • Super quick installation times with exceptional quality
  • Industry leading 20 year warranty on mounting system products
  • With both ClickFit and FlatFix solutions, there is an ESDEC product to suit your mounting needs

Battery Storage

Tesla Powerwall

Tesla Powerwall is a home battery system that turns your home’s solar panels into an all day resource – increasing self-consumption of solar– while also offering backup in the event of an outage. Tesla Powerwall enables more of your home’s electricity use to come from solar, which enhances solar functionality, and reduces energy costs.

When solar panels produce more power than a home needs, the excess solar is sent back to the grid. Tesla Powerwall enables a homeowner instead to capture and store excess solar power produced during the day for use at night. The result is greater self-consumption of your solar generation and reduced energy costs. In the event of a utility outage, Tesla Powerwall can power your entire home or select appliances with an uninterrupted supply of electricity. When installed along with solar panels, Tesla Powerwall will allow your home to use solar generated electricity during a utility outage.

  • Powers your home safely and economically
  • Wall mounted
  • Beautifully designed for your home
  • Indoor and outdoor rated
