How will I be billed for the electricity generated on my roof?
You will receive a bill for the solar electricity in addition to your regular electricity bill. You will notice the number of KWh reduce on your regular electricity bill and these kWh will appear on your solar electricity bill, but at a lower unit price.
Will this 25 year solar deal mean I have to buy all my energy from Electric Ireland?
No, you are free to choose any electricity and gas supplier.
What happens if we don’t use all the electricity the solar PV system generates?
At times of peak solar generation, if you do not have sufficient demand on-site, the excess power is exported to the national grid. Equally, when the PV system is generating less than your total demand, the shortfall is made up through importing from the national grid. You will not receive a payment for any exported electricity.
