Installation of domestic solar PV system
A domestic solar PV system consists of a number of solar panels mounted to your roof (or in your garden) and connected into the electrical loads within your building. The solar panels generate DC (direct current – like a battery) electricity, which is then converted in an inverter to AC (alternating current – like the electricity in your domestic socket). Solar PV systems are rated in kilowatts (kW). A 1kW solar PV system would require 3 or 4 solar panels on your roof.
Any excess electricity produced can be stored in a battery, or other storage solution like your hot water immersion tank. It can also be exported from your house into the electrical network on your street.
Generating electricity from solar
The term ‘solar panel’ is often used interchangeably to describe the panels that generate electricity and those that generate hot water.
Solar panels that produce electricity are known as solar photovoltaic (PV) modules. These panels generate DC electricity when exposed to light.
Solar PV is the rooftop solar you see on homes and businesses. PV or photovoltaic solar panels turn daylight into electricity and provide you with energy and electricity to power your TV, kettle, toaster, phone charger, radio, oven and so on
Generating Free Electricity
Installing a Solar PV system means that you are generating free electricity for your home and therefore lowering your utility bills ongoing
Heating of Your Water
You will also be able to heat your water with any excess electricity that has been generated from your Solar PV panels
Reduce your emissions
Generating your own renewable electricity also has benefits for our environment. The energy you consume will be clean energy which cuts down on your greenhouse gas emissions.

After talking with a number of the approved solar PV installers listed on the SEAI website, we decided to go with GoSolar/PB Electrical for the installation of a 4kw solar PV system with backup battery, and an electric car charging point. During this time, Paul and Lorraine were very informative in answering all our queries related to how a solar PV system works, and what is required for the installation. Moreover, their quotation for the installation was also very competitive. Work on-site was finished in a very timely manner, with minimal disruption. The follow up service was also exemplary. We would have no hesitation in recommending GoSolar/PB Electrical to anyone considering installing solar PV panels.
The team from Go Solar arrived at my house at 8:30 am. They did a wonderful job of installing the system, I was very impressed with their care and professionalism – they really are first-rate electricians and installers. In addition, their office has been very helpful and easy to communicate with. They dealt with the SEAI grant application paperwork quickly and efficiently, so the whole process was smooth and hassle-free for me. I was also happy with the pricing, which was very reasonable compared to some of the other quotes I got for the same system.
I had a 4Kw Solar PV system installed with a 3.5Kwh BYD battery and a Solar iBoost hot water diverter by GoSolar in December 2019, the installation went very well and the crew were both polite and professional. They even went above and beyond to resolve a problem involving a 35yr old immersion heater which had nothing to do with them.
There were a couple of minor configuration issues early on which were resolved promptly by Paul, who always responds to a voicemail or text. All the paperwork and admin for the SEAI grant was dealt with efficiently by Lorraine in the office and went through without a hitch.
The system has been running flawlessly for over 6months now and the savings are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough of Paul and the whole GoSolar team, and would highly recommend them, so much so a work colleague and my next door neighbour have since commissioned them to have similar systems installed.
