Our technical team conducted a site survey to gain an understanding of the scope of the project. The house was built in 1970 and had a low energy performance level. The house was heated using a mixture of solid and fossil fuels. Malcolm wanted to reduce his use of these fuels and become more energy efficient.
Based on the site survey, North Cork Electrical determined that a 7.2kw solar PV system and hot water diverter was the best solution for Malcolm. This system consisted of:
This project involved installing solar panels on three separate roofs. The installation of this project took a total of two working days.
Malcolm appointed North Cork Electrical as contractors on the SEAI grant application. We managed the grant application process and Malcolm availed of a grant total of €3,000.00 towards the installation. In addition, we will process the grant paperwork once we are nominated the contractors for the project.
The installation of the full system will generate a potential yield of Yield – 6665.2kWh per year. Malcolm now uses less solid and fossil fuels as the surplus electricity is used to heat the home.
