Why choose Planet Blue Energy Ireland?

At Planet Blue Energy, we understand the importance of educating future generations about the Environment. This is why we would like to work with your school to help educate your students on the benefits of the new Solar PV system, how it works and the positive effect it has on the environment through an in-person talk once the installation is complete.

Post-installation, we won’t be going anywhere! We are always available to answer any questions you might have about your new Solar PV System, and to provide any maintenance should this be required.

How much can a 6kw Solar System save us?

The amount of electricity generated annually will depend on a range of factors including geographical location, shading and the direction and angle in which the panels are installed. A 6kW system roughly translates to 16 Solar Panels. The SEAI indicate that a well-located 16 Panel Solar PV system would typically generate up to 5,000 kWh of electricity a year.

Depending on your price per kWh this could mean savings of up to €2000 annually!
