Do Solar Panels Give a Decent Output in Ireland?

The answer is that Ireland’s climate is much more favourable to PV solar than many people realise.

Do Solar Panels Give a Decent Output in Ireland?

Solar panels can produce power from either daylight or sunlight. But do we get enough light to make solar panels worth it in Ireland? The answer is that Ireland’s climate is much more favourable to PV solar than many people realise. Specifically, a medium-sized solar panel system generates around 4,000 units of electricity per year in Irish conditions. That’s enough to cover around 70% of the electricity use for an average Irish household, plus some excess to export on the grid on bright days. So yes, a modern solar panel system can give a very decent output in Ireland.

How Much Will You Save With Solar Panels?

The more electricity you use, the more you can save. Typically, you can reduce your electricity bill by around 40-50% with solar panels and add a power diverter for hot water. Add a battery to boost your savings to 70% or more. These numbers are year-round estimates and will be higher in the summer and lower in the winter.
