PV Solar

How do Solar PV panels work?

Light from the sun, or more specifically, photons from the sun (aka solar energy) hit the photovoltaic (PV) array which causes an electric current to be generated.

Solar PV systems in Ireland are low-maintenance, requiring occasional cleaning to ensure optimal performance. Panels tilted at 15° or more benefit from natural rain cleaning. Ground-mounted panels may accumulate debris, which can be easily removed with warm water and a brush or a high-pressure hose.

Purchase Solar Panels in Ireland:
At Laltec Solar, our highly skilled engineers possess extensive experience in planning and installing solar PV panels for optimal performance and safety. Our team will keep you informed throughout the installation process, and our customer support ensures your panels work seamlessly for years to come.

We use the latest equipment, technology, and training, backed by the necessary certifications, to deliver the highest quality solar PV panels and installations on the Irish market.

Solar PV Panel Installation:
Our process begins with a free, no-obligation property assessment, which includes measuring your roof’s suitability for solar panels. During this assessment, we review your utility bills and calculate potential savings and available tariffs. With your permission, we evaluate if the panels can pay for themselves and benefit you through our online portal.

If you’re satisfied with the figures and wish to proceed, we’ll seek financial backing for the system. The repayments may be covered by tariffs and the savings generated from the solar system. If self-funding isn’t feasible, you have the option to make a small contribution.

If all aligns, we proceed with the installation of your system, and you become the owner, reaping all its benefits. With a lifespan of at least 20 years, it can yield an average of €16,000.

Commercial and Domestic Solar Panels in Ireland:
Solar panels offer substantial savings for both domestic households and commercial properties in Ireland, reducing carbon footprints and energy bills significantly. Commercial properties, in particular, benefit from reduced electricity bills, potential tax relief, and additional income opportunities.

Solar Power and Battery Storage:
When paired with a battery (commonly known as a home energy-storage system), Solar PV panels can store excess energy for later use, especially during peak hours or when your solar system can’t meet your household’s energy needs. Brands like Puredrive, Dryness, Sungrow and Huawei offer various energy-storage solutions that can be retrofitted to your existing solar PV system.

Determining the Number of Solar Panels:
There’s no fixed requirement for the number of solar panels, but generally, more panels generate more electricity and increase your potential savings. Coupled with solar battery storage, you can further reduce your electric bills by storing excess energy for future use.

A common solar PV system size in Ireland is a 4kW system with approximately 10 panels or a 5kW system with 16 panels plus, depending on the size of your roof. The expected annual savings will range  €1200 to €3000, depending on what rate the consumer is paying for electricity.
